The desire to do something for disabled children in Myanmar was rooted in the heart of the founder, U Tha Uke, when he was working as a Physiotherapist in 1995-96 at the Spastic Children Association of Penang, Malaysia, and after volunteering twice a week at the Eden Handicap Service Centre. He continued to work as a Physiotherapist at St. Luke’s Hospital for the Elderly, Singapore, for another two years but came back to his mother country for good in August 1998. He took nearly one year to finish his project proposal for the Eden Handicapped Service Centre (EHSC), Yangon, Myanmar and during that time he met Daw Lilian Gyi, the principal of the School for Disabled Children, who had dedicated her whole life to children with disabilities. She helped him as a mentor for this project from the beginning.
