The Matu have limited access to news in their own language, and thus are often not aware of what is going on inside Burma or in the world at large. Indeed, most Matu don’t speak English, Hindi, or Burmese, and so local language publications are important as a source of news but also as a means of maintaining their cultural heritage.

The Matu Hlimtue Herald News Journal has been published since 2007 thanks to small donations it has received. The organization hopes to increase its readership by printing more copies thanks to this grant.

You can help by contributing to the costs of publishing the journal for three months, from July to September 2012, including electricity and stationery, communication and transportation, and printing and distributing the journal.
