Myanmar Empowerment

This campaign ended on January 31, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Coker College by clicking here!

The goal of Myanmar Empowerment is to strengthen the Coker Enactus team’s partnership with New Hope, a non-governmental organization based out of Myanmar that operates a number of community centers in rural areas, in an effort to end human trafficking and provide the people of Myanmar with the resources necessary to become self-sufficient. The community centers serve as safe spaces for members of the community and offer everything from basic education for children to life and work skills workshops for women and men. Coker Enactus’s latest fundraising campaign will provide resources for these community centers, including food, school supplies, salaries, and opportunities for skill development within a small business environment.

In just one community center, we will be able to empower nearly 300 people a year. Director Andrew Taske said, “The vision is truly Enactus; it's truly social entrepreneurship. We help put the investment in, and [New Hope] trains on welding, computer skills, and selling. Then they take those skills and go into the community and make money.”

Please help us reach the $5,000 goal with a gift in any amount. There are incentives for gifts of $250, $100, and $50. For $250, you’ll receive a handmade pillowcase and your sponsorship will help feed 3 children over the course of 1 year. If you give $100, you will receive a handmade bag and your sponsorship will provide the opportunity for 1 adult to complete a 3-month skills training program in sewing, welding, or information technology. Upon completing the training program, the individual will be able to earn a living for his or her family. If you give $50, you will receive a handmade tissue cover and your sponsorship will provide school supplies for children in Dala.   

Thank you!
