DevelopEd | Development & Education (DevelopEd Australia) was created following a volunteer placement on the Thai/Myanmar border by Mark Brown. From discussions with the Myanmar people in Thailand, he identified that there was a significant need for education for young adults, and an opportunity to meet that need via local and international resources. DevelopEd was established in Australia as an international non-government organisation (NGO) in 2012. DevelopEd Australia is the parent organisation that is used to raise funds, disperse funds to projects, and coordinate executive and administrative activities. Additional research was conducted in Myanmar over 2013, and the pilot project was decided to be established in Lashio. DevelopEd Education Limited (DevelopEd Lashio) was registered in Myanmar, in February 2014, to establish an education centre in Lashio, Northern Shan State, Myanmar.
