NGO visit is an integral part of our projects in Mae Sot.
It provides the our participants with different insights into the local situation in addition to those they gain from their work. It also helps us to find out more about the needs of the migrant communities and benefits future development of the volunteer programs.
The NGOs we visited this time were Mae Tao Clinic, Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (Burma) (AAPP), and The Young Generations’ Note Journal and Media Training Centre. We are grateful for the time and efforts the NGOs took to host the Connecting Myanmar volunteers.
