Putting the safety of our staff first

You’re probably aware of the evolving situation in Myanmar which is taking a turn for the worse since its inception on February the first. We’ve needed to put the safety of our staff members and the communities we work with first.

Using a wait and see approach, we’ve suspended the project activities for the Children’s Financial Literacy Program and Livelihoods Program. For the DigiCUD Program, we’ll continue to progress the development of the online banking platform which is carried out remotely using Internet. We expect there’ll be some time before we’re able to return to the classrooms and to the communities we work with in Myanmar. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
