In March 2019 we went to Yangon, the largest city of Myanmar. This country is struck with a big contrast of rich and poor. With a team of 7 we went to several places which are exposed to extreme poverty, some of the slums have only 3 hours of electricity and no access to clean water. We also went to a safe house where young girls were saved from human trafficking. Next to the visits, we also did a 4-day program packed with activities and education with children of age 4 - 16. And last but not least we learned about “Business as Mission”: How to teach and reach local leaders and entrepreneurs to set up a business.
We also had a successful crowdfunding campaign through instagram and collected approx. 9000 euros for donation cause.
