 LIFE PROJECT CENTER - HLAING THAR YAR 

In April 2019, the team of LP4Y catalysts settled in Yangon, the ancient capital of the country and the main commercial center. After 3 months of mapping the city, the coaches decided to settle in Hlaing Thar Yar, located in the western part of Yangon. It is one of the largest municipalities in the country and the most populated. The township has 20 neighborhoods and nine villages. Hlaing Thar Yar is also one of the largest industrial parks in the country, with mainly clothing, car parts, processed food and other light industries. A large number of factories located in this area provide many small daily jobs, with poor conditions and the lowest wages possible. In July 2019, 20 young people joined the first English course. 60% are young women and 40% are young men. Most of them are internal Burmese migrants who, for economic or climate reasons, have moved inland from the coastal areas in the hope of finding a job in Yangon. By the end of September 2019, these 20 young people had reached Autonomy step and were divided into two teams to launch the complete Professional Training for Entrepreneurs and to create two micro-economic activities.

“New country, new language, new culture, new religion, new challenges. Launching LP4Y in a new country is like nothing we have experienced so far. We will start from scratch and build the project brick by brick. We will start by creating the legal structure, not an easy task as it is specific to each country. Then our key focus will be to carry out the “mapping”, looking for different poverty and exclusion areas in this unknown megalopolis, home to 7 million inhabitants. This will enable us to identify the most suitable area to set up the future LPC, designed to host Youth, catalysts and programs. Simultaneously, we will aim to meet as many potential partners as possible in order to create a network of NGOs, companies, local actors and influential persons ready to work
hand in hand for the professional and social inclusion of excluded Youth. It will be an essential step to ensure the sustainable integration of LP4Y and maximize its impact in the city and country of operation.”
