In 2017, Saya U Aung Myaing (ChE72) requested his former sayas and colleagues to donate for the “Training Component” of the YTU Modernization Project. The projected expense was $3000.
Sponsors and donors
Saya U Maung Maung (George, ChE66) donated $500 as seed money for the fund. Saya U Myat Thwin (ChE66) and Saya U Tin Maung Nyunt (M60) donated $500 each. Yap May Hoe (ChE67) donated $1000.
Other sayas and alumni in the US, Singapore and Myanmar donated in cash and kind.
Better late than never
It took some time to get the “Training Component” project by the higher authorities.
The project came to fruition in July 2018.
U Wynn Htain Oo (M72) posted photos about the tour to the selected libraries in Singapore.
