THE MANDALAY PRISON PROJECT
Last year, we successfully completed the Pathein prison project. The Director General of prisons of Myanmar requested that we consider a similar facility in Mandalay. Mandalay prison is the 2nd largest prison in Myanmar. It houses 4000 inmates currently. There were more than 60 children attending a small preschool and day care center which was in need of renovation. The Bridge of Life did a major renovation of the existing structure, both inside and out. The Bridge of Life air conditioned the structure. The Bridge of Life constructed a separate facility for the children, age 1 and two years.
The Bridge of Life landscaped the property and installed a large playground complete with age specific equipment.
