Yangon retains many incredibly beautiful heritage buildings that are in need of restoration.
An Australian funded volunteer is working with the Yangon Heritage Trust which is trying to progress important cultural preservation goals.
So you can see the scope of volunteer opportunities through AVI is varied.
It can be difficult with many buildings having multiple tenants and ancient infrastructure… as these electricity boxes can attest… but the passion of locals behind these heritage projects is seeing dividends as Myanmar changes before one’s eyes.
Ok – my toes make an appearance again… but you have to love these tiles!
