Myanmar Schools Project

Three Cups of Tea may be a #1 New York Times Bestseller, but the story from my Uncle Duke hits much closer to home.

For years, he has been dedicating his time and dollars to renovating and building schools in Myanmar, and to date, there are seventeen projects on the go.

This is from the Myanmar Schools Project website:

"We believe that every educated child can help him/herself and future children become free of the burden of poverty and contribute to the well-being of their families and communities."

One dollar at a time, one day at a time, one trip at a time and over time, he has achieved so much.
