Campaigning for Peace
In December 2016 Prospect Burma ran our first dedicated online fundraising campaign, with the aim of raising £5,000 to provide a scholarship to specifically further peace. We believe that the best way to build a better future for the country is to equip the young people of Myanmar with skills, experience and knowledge, and understanding conflict resolution, and achieving peace in the country is central to this. The campaign, which took place across social media and on our website, received a fantastic reception. Thank you to all who responded and supported us. Our next round of scholarship applications is now open, and we look forward to updating you on the recipient of the Peace Campaign funding in a future edition of the newsletter. This will not be the first scholarship of this kind that we have provided however.
