For the past 12 years we have been working with communities in Myanmar developing creative and focused ways to invest in people, ideas, and social care. We strive for sustainability in community developed projects that are based on the ideas that matter to the people they will impact. We believe that in order for the projects to survive they need to be culturally appropriate and relevant to the needs of the people in Myanmar. That is why partnerships are vital to the our success of our organization.
How We Started
In 2004, our founder Chris Scott met Pastor Ako on his first trip to Myanmar. They had an instant connection. One year later it seemed like the stars aligned and Chris was able to travel to Myanmar alone to meet with Ako again. On that trip a vision was formed for the future of a relationship between communities in Myanmar and the U.S. For the following decade a yearly support trip was formed and we began to see needs arise in the community that have serious affects on the livelihoods of the people living there. At this point, Ako asked us to partner with him to elevate his town out of poverty. We worked with him to support an orphanage, starts two schools, and focus education programs in his community.
Now we are at a new stage. We are building new programs and partnerships to address the serious issues of poverty. Through our experience for the last decade we have discovered that the most effective way that we can help is to partner and invest in leaders that have a clear vision for the future of their community. We are doing that through investing in youth and working with people who know what they are doing. Learn more about what we are doing now, here.
We would like to ask you to partner with us and make a difference towards positive social change.
