Myanmar’s Three Rs Movement 60th anniversary to be held with large attendance


According to the Literacy and Regional Development Support Association, the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Myanmar’s Three Rs Movement (1964-2024) will be held in a crowded manner.
Discussions were underway for the publication of a commemorative magazine (Echo from the Heart) and the holding of an article competition commemorating the 60th anniversary of Myanmar’s Three Rs Movement at the monthly meeting of the Literacy and Regional Development Support Association on 26 May.
According to the negotiations, the ceremony will be held with a high turnout through the process of keeping the ceremony and publishing books.
The State Administration Council Chairman also stated in the message sent to the 76th Independence Day ceremony on 4 January that literacy activities such as Myanmar’s Three Rs movement course will be implemented as a national movement throughout the country.
In such doing, volunteer students, teachers, local educators and local employees will get the help of ethnic language teaching assistants and implement it in the form of a nationwide national movement. All rural people and indigenous peoples will inevitably be literate and have primary education.
Three Rs is a significant educational project to eradicate illiteracy among older people throughout Myanmar. It is named after the three initials of the Myanmar word ‘Ah’, which means writing, reading, and arithmetic.
With a total of more than 70,000 student volunteers from universities, colleges, and institutes and a total of more than 500,000 local teachers and students, the great project started in Meiktila District in 1964 with the East Model Village Literacy Project and taught all over Myanmar until 1984. — TWA/KZL
