Now that the splashing and relaxing is finished, we here at UPLift are happy to announce that Ko Lin, previously a Wide Horizons project management student, is starting work with us here in Mae Sot. Ko Lin also served as a financial literacy trainer with women on the landfill as part of our Project Inspire grant activities, so he has a great deal of experience and know-how for the program.

During April we will be speaking to the women on the landfill again about their future plans and goals, as well as beginning the process of translating the finance modules fully into Burmese.
Finally, we are looking forward to helping a CBO of ethnic Palaung members conduct their own financial literacy training for their staff. This initial training is in preparation for future trainings inside of Shan State, Burma.
