Every year we have more and more companies choose to join our project of improving life for young Burmese refugees. We are open to different types of support and we can adapt ourselves to the needs of each business.
Thus far, companies have joined the cause by financing specific projects, donating products to give away at events, spreading our cause through their website or newsletters, and offering us their services free of charge. To all of these businesses: Thank you!
