Burma Alumni Service Trip

The U.Va. Alumni & Parent Travel Program has partnered with a non-profit organization to create a unique service opportunity to Burma and provide much-needed basic educational, health and other services to a large orphanage and several villages in the poorest regions of the country. The healthcare service will be determined by the specialties of those who sign up for the trip. Every specialty is needed. If you are not in healthcare, you will help teach English in a primary school built with funds donated by U.Va. alumni travelers in a remote village. English is in their curriculum but they need to hear it spoken by native speakers to truly learn.

You may also help train nurses aides at a charity hospital on basic sanitation, clean water, dysentery, calories, vitamins, and other basic topics. Companions or spouses are welcome and may participate in service in various ways. We will do some sightseeing along the way and the option for an extension to Bagan to see the iconic Pagodas is available.
