Health & Hope deliver a number of one-off projects that support our core objectives, either directly or in partnership with other organisations. These include our annual appeals and in the past have included the rebuilding of the training centre in Lailenpi, which was destroyed in a cyclone in 2017, building a dormitory for the Education for All students, and supporting the construction of an Airstrip in Lailenpi town alongside Mission Aviation Fellowship which has currently paused due to insecurity.

The aim of this project is to build an accommodation hall which will complement the Health and Hope Training Centre, allowing it to be used to its full capacity.
In May 2017, Cyclone Mora destroyed seven buildings at the Health and Hope Myanmar (HHM) training centre in Lailenpi, Chin State. Over the last two years, HHM have rebuilt the training facility which provides the base from which to launch health, education and food security projects to the poorest of the poor in the remote regions of western Myanmar.
The accommodation hall is the final part of rebuilding the Health & Hope campus in Lailenpi. The overall scheme includes offices, classrooms, storage, the training hall, library, kitchen, dining area and staff accommodation. This building will provide the accommodation facilities required at the heart of HHM’s work, enabling full-use of Health & Hope training centre as a base for running projects, undertaking outreach work and training villages. With the near completing of the Training Centre, the HHM team now has a secure multi-use building with classrooms and a large training hall from which to continue their work.
In June 2019, the Education for All project was launched, providing 104 students with full-time education for 10 months of the year. The project aims to radically transform the poor pass rate (less than 20%) as well as the life opportunities, for these students. Over the last 6 months, the training centre has provided classroom facilities and accommodation for these students, as well as facilities for other training workshops for Clinical Health Workers and Traditional Birth Attendants, that have taken place throughout the year. However, without accommodation, the training centre is only able to be used at half of its capacity. Building a separate dormitory block is now a critical component of ongoing delivery of effective projects for the local community.
