LIFE PROJECT CENTER - HLAING THAR YAR
The first Life Project Center opened in Hlaing Thar Yar in November 2019. In this West Yangon township 1 million people, mostly internally displaced, scrape a living by working precarious jobs in factories. Thanks to a solid ecosystem based around the Life Project Center, 2 teams were created in September. Not less than a month later, the Youth launched the Micro Economic Initiatives. Cotton 4 You produces traditional cotton t-shirts with the objective of opening and managing a store selling products from social enterprises and local fair trade NGOs. The Youth at MyanMade design postcards and posters representing Burmese culture. A medium-term goal is to launch an art library to exhibit in partner companies. In 2021, LP4Y plans to open a Green Village to support Youth from rural areas.
