LIFE PROJECT CENTERS

 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.

Myanmar Coordinator - Project Leader Pedagogical Development & Coaching

“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.”
