New Delhi / India

July 26, 2003

     The lack of political freedom in today Burma is a major causative factor of the Nation’s educational breakdown. All social services in the country including, most importantly, education services have drastically declined for years. Particularly, Matupi is one of the most affected regions educationally, socially, and economically within Burma.  

     Even students, who have no direct political involvement in pro-democracy uprisings and anti-government organizations, have been unable to live peacefully and perform academic study successfully as the result of social injustices and discrimination in their own country ruled by the military regime. Moreover, Matu people’s motivation to pursue proper education has been further crippled by the junta’s burmanization policy against the country’s minority ethnic groups. As such, Matu people have been undergoing life-insecurity, political persecution, and loss of educational opportunities under the current Burma’s weakening educational system. Therefore, hundreds of Matu students have been displaced in the neighboring countries such as Thailand, India, Malaysia, and other parts of the world, and their life-style without professional careers in their Diasporas has become a new emerging issue.

     Recognizing the widespread effects of inaccessibility of quality education both within Burma and without, a group of Matu College & University students in exile held a historic meeting in New Delhi on the 26th of July, 2003, and formed an organization, later named as ‘Matupi Students Union’. Since then, the union has been committed to providing the various needs of all Matupi students including educational support as its primary objective.   

Mission objectives:
(1)       To promote education of Matu people
(2)       To strengthen ‘Unity’ among the Matu students
(3)       To build co-operation with Burmese Democracy and Human Rights Organizations
