Prospect Burma

Prospect Burma addresses the skills gap in Myanmar to tackle the country’s worsening humanitarian crisis and to build human capital for a better future. We offer practical, targeted support to equip individuals and organisations with expertise to match their energy and dedication to build a peaceful future. We work with local partners to provide access to critical thinking skills and formal education from post-high school level upwards. We offer scholarships to quality higher education abroad which isn’t available in Myanmar. Our theory of change is based on a multiplier effect: by improving equitable access to knowledge, confidence, critical thinking skills, international awareness, and leadership skills, individuals can use these skills to build capacity in-country and maximise the positive difference they can make. Our scholars have gone on to work in influential positions in international and Myanmar companies, and organisations such as the World Bank, WHO and the UN.
