Exposure visit of GLP alumnae from Rakhine to Self-Help Women Groups in Innlay, Nyaungshwe, and Taunggyi Townships

Six GLP alumnae from Mrauk U, Ponna Gyun and Sittwe townships visited Innlay, Nyaung Shwe, and Taunggyi townships for 4 days from March 14 to 17 in 2019 in order to learn how self-help women groups have been working for women economic empowerment and how they make market linkages for their products. On the first day, they visited “Shwe Inn Thu” and the women’s cohort in Innlay township called “Shwe Innlay” to learn how they operate their work. The six alumnae also visited the Southern Shan Women Development Organization (SSWDO) and the Southern Shan State Women Organizations Network (SSSWON) to learn about their work and activities. Yaung Chi Thit expressed its heartfelt thanks and gratitude to those who gave their time to explain about their organizations and work.
