ThaBarWa Center is a meditation center located in Thanlyin (Myanmar) and a non-profit humanitarian organization. It is a place where volunteers can practice meditation and donate their time, effort and energy to help others and do unlimited good deeds.
The center was established in 2008 by a local monk for the general benefit and it is taking care of the most crucial needs of the local community. It has grown to a small village offering refuge 24 hours a day, seven days a week without restrictions. It is a sanctuary for people from all class and regions who seek refuge or care and attention and/or the desire to practice meditation. The center provides sanctuary for more than 3400 people including the aged, sick, disabled, homeless and helpless. It provides help without discrimination or restrictions.
As international volunteers you can help the center in several ways. Some of the activities are helping patients with general care, washing and physiotherapy. Also volunteers can help in the maintenance and building activities at the center. Teaching English to locals, making art projects, cooking, gardening and taking care of children is also something that we do. Basically each volunteer is free to participate in every activity as they like or to learn a new skill. Volunteers can also propose and discuss new projects if they have any skills that can be useful for the benefit of the center and its residents.
