Kwin Gyi ist eine Mittelstufen-Schule mit acht Klassen (1.-8. Stufe) und Kindergarten. Die Schule verfügt über zwei Gebäude mit fünf Klassenzimmer. So hat nicht jede Klasse ihr eigenes Klassenzimmer und es werden zeitweise zwei Klassen im selben Raum unterrichtet. Doch es fehlt nicht nur an Platz - auch die sanitären Anlagen sind mangelhaft: So verfügt die Schule über lediglich drei Toiletten (für über 250 Kinder und Lehrer) und es gibt keinen Regenwasser-Tank um die Schule mit ausreichend Wasser zu versorgen.

July 2019 - Inauguration Kwin Gyi School
In July the grand opening ceremony of the new middle school took place in Kwin Gyi!
Representatives from the government, teachers, students and of course the whole village attended the highlight.
Thanks to the generous support of a donor, the school in Kwin Gyi has been under construction since the beginning of February. It was possible to build another, pleasant school environment for the children in Myanmar.
Thanks to the help of many helpers on site, we were able to represent the motto of 600Kids:
- School education is the only way for children to sustainably escape poverty.
News 19. February 2018 - Pilot Project Horticulture
As a pilot project 600Kids.org provided seeds and tools to grow vegetables in school gardens (horticulture) in four schools – Thit To Chaung, Ma Lot, Min Hla Su and Kwin Gyi – with the aim to continue future school feeding with vegetables harvested from school garden as a sustainable source. Children are taking part in plantation so they are able to learn about agriculture practically.
School furniture desks with benches are prepared to support to the schools Kwin Gyi, Lada Chaung and Taung Tha Lae depending on actual need of each school.

Rainwater collecting tank (4500 gallons) was built for Kwin Gyi, Middle School in response to one of the fundamental needs of lacking water source for safe drinking water at this school and instead rainwater from roof top gutter was collected with some clay pot that is not enough for children.
