TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT CENTER MYANMAR
“It goes without saying that 2020 in Myanmar has been more than a little exceptional. Together, we made sure to turn the difficulties into strength. We were able to count on our partners and our network to help us support the Youth in their job search. The project went so well that the Youth found work in the midst of the pandemic, and we were able to inaugurate Myanmar’s very first Stars Club without delay!”

In 2020, the Yangon center became a Training & Development Center and integrated Digital Inc. into its pedagogy. The Coaches worked hard to develop local partnerships. The French Ambassador honored the center with a visit to meet the Youth and find out about the activities.
Local Burmese Catalysts have been recruited to ensure the activities continue despite the current political situation. Thanks to their unwavering determination to deal with the various challenges (Internet shutdown, banks closed, etc.) they maintain training and continue to support the Youth on a daily basis.
In 2021, Micro Economic Initiatives will initially focus on educating children as schools have been closed for a year. The network of partners will be developed through local organizations in order to make LP4Y known to excluded Youth, and also to businesses, with a view to developing professional integration opportunities.

I live with my mother and help with her job before Lp4y. I entered lp4y because I want to improve my skills, knowledge and get experiences. Before joining Lp4y, I was a very timid person although I wanted to get a good job in communication. I thought I would be far from my dreams at that time. But when I reach Lp4Y, I am more confident to communicate with people, improve my English and computer skills, and know professional behaviors in work. Thanks to the company visits and mock interviews, I got many experiences. I am sure after Lp4y, I will get a job which I am interested in and also, I can learn something that will help my dreams come true.
