Denmark will contribute $4 million to UNICEF for the latter’s Quality Basic Education Program (QBEP) in a bid improve education access in Myanmar.
Launched in 2012, QBEP is a collaborative effort among development partners, aimed at improving opportunities for children to access quality education.
Over the last four years, the program was able to teach 38,000 students in non-formal education, and trained 20,000 primary school teachers.
Mikael Hemniti Winther, ambassador of Denmark to Thailand, said the grant aims to provide quality education to people and kids around the country who have no access to education. “We can get these kids to school where they can learn better … and have much more opportunities.”
