Mithasu refers to the core bond of family, and in particular the relationship between mother and daughter. Mithasu Project aims to provide life skills training to young women and mothers in the ancient village of Bagan. These are identified specific to the community’s needs, which currently earns its livelihood through tourism, the lacquerware industry and a struggling agrarian economy.
As the nation of Myanmar emerges from its isolation, the youth are confronted with the infiltration of different cultural and social values and how to integrate these in their own personal identity. Mithasu Project hopes to create meaningful dialogue and sharing about these identity issues, while engendering empowerment within a harmonious and loving community environment.
Some of our life skills training projects will include: swimming lessons, English language and basic intercultural business training.
