We have been building new schools over the past decade, either where none existed previously, or where there were rudimentary buildings. The schools are located all over Myanmar, and one is in North East Thailand in a Karen tribal village which is made up of many Burmese former refugees.. The schools are sited and construction is coordinated by 100Schools, and most are built by villagers themselves with assistance. We are committed to sustainable construction and the use of local resources .
U R Building Knowledge is a small non-profit organization registered in Canada . We fund the construction and operation of new schools in villages for the children of Myanmar..
The money raised by U R Building Knowledge supports the work of an incredible team “on the ground” in Myanmar. The team was small and necessarily very quiet about their achievements until about 2012. With more open government in Myanmar we are able to openly show their achievements on the web. Thank you for supporting URBK, and through us ‘100 Schools’, through the early years and now. The 100 Schools team now includes 35 talented masons, carpenters and iron rebar workers plus 2 cooks, who construct multiple schools simultaneously on several sites.
