About Us

The Monastic Education Development group (MEDG) is a community based organization that supports the improvement of monastic education across Myanmar. The work is coordinated by a group of senior monks involved in Monastic Education who have been elected by their peers to take responsibility for the overall improvement of the quality of education in monastic schools throughout Myanmar. The monks act as a steering group for MEDG which is registered with the Ministry of Religious Affairs. Monastic schools are not religious but act as low or no cost private schools, teaching the national curriculum often to the most disadvantaged children.
