As a responsible corporate citizen, Avarga believes in contributing towards driving positive and sustainable changes for the benefit of the local communities where we operate and the society as a whole.
At present, our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts are largely focused in Myanmar, where we see room to help improve living and education standards.
We identified a government primary school near our power plant, No. 16 Basic Education Primary School, Ywama, Insein township. In 2015, we replaced two-thirds of the school’s old furniture with new desks and chairs to accommodate some 200 pupils per session.
In 2016, we took a major step to further improve conditions for the school. We spent US$50,000 to construct a new 900 sq ft air-conditioned multi-media hall, and equipped it with 31 sets of new computers, accessories, desks and chairs. We hope to equip the pupils with better computer and literacy skills and at the same time, help cultivate a stronger learning culture.
The multi-media hall has become the pride of the school and the community. With this, the school also has one of the most advanced facilities among government primary schools, despite being located in one of the economically poorer townships in Yangon.
We gave each of the 830 students of this school, a set of uniforms, books and a school bag in 2018. We also donated US$8,000 for the construction of the school hall and meal area for the students, which has been completed.
In 2017, we identified another government school that was in need of funds for repair, No.149 Basic Education Post-Primary School in Kanyatgyi Village, Kanma Township, Magway Region. This school is located some 400 miles from Yangon. We completed the construction of a new 2,700 sq ft school building in 2018 and donated a set of uniforms, books and a school bag to each of the school’s 203 students.
