Asian Aid USA has Moved

Asian Aid USA has Moved (1)

5631 Watkins Street, Ooltewah, TN 37363

On May 19, 2009, Asian Aid USA moved from Auburn, Nebraska to Collegedale, Tennessee with growth in mind. Eight years later, Asian Aid has outgrown its small office space. With six employees, it was time for a larger space. After much searching and prayer, God led us to the perfect location—just five minutes from the old office.

We purchased a two-story home that is now our commercially zoned office building. It allows for each staff member to have enough work space, plenty of storage, parking and room for growth. We are grateful for this gift from God and invite you to stop by for a visit. Our phone number (423) 910-0667 will remain the same as will as our email, support@asianaid.org.

New Field Officer in Myanmar

cinn

As our first — and only — field officer in Myanmar, Ciin Zen’s job is to visit the schools where we have students, check in on the children, and update records. Ciin is based in the capital city Yangon and has to travel throughout Myanmar. Visiting some schools may take a long time and be very challenging.

Last week her report read, “I went to Myat Kyaw schools in Dawei and had to take cycle taxi and then walk to school for an hour because the road is not good due to heavy rain. It took me two days even though the students are very few in that school. Then I visited another school which took me another four days including traveling. I was not able to visit one school (Laypota Adventist Seminary) due to fighting and shooting between Myanmar government and the Karen group near the school. There were no phone connection in those school areas so I wasn’t able to update end of the week.”

The Immanuel Adventist School, in Jeypore India, is the largest Asian Aid School with over 400 Asian Aid children.

Most of these children come from tribal areas. Immanuel school, started in 1997, gives over 850 students a brighter future in a region that needs such opportunities. For many of those sponsored by Asian Aid, an education is only possible through sponsorship.

Now with 20 new computers, the students will continue to receive the quality of education they deserve. As we have learned in western societies, computers are a vital aspect to primary and secondary education. Having a basic understanding and the ability to maneuver through standard programs and the internet prepares the next generation for the workforce. This special impact on these kids at one of the largest Adventist mission schools in India is possible in part from donors like you!
