Ice Cream is Nor Naw’s Passion
Nor Naw is Kachin and comes from Shwe Nyaung Pin, Moe Gok though he currently lives in North-Dagon with a host family. He is 22 years old. He has eight siblings and they are all with his father. His father is a hard-working farmer. Although his father is very hard-working, they are still poor and they have many uncertainties for family needs. So, he wants to become a business man when he is still young. He wasn’t sure about how to start a business. One day, he heard about the Opportunities NOW through his host family and he wanted to attend the school. Now, he is one of the students of Opportunities NOW. He is learning how to start a business and topics related to business. He believes that if he works hard, he’ll have success. He has a goal in his life which is to be an owner of a business. After he finishes the school, he’ll start an ice cream waffer business with his friends.
Nor Naw is one of 6 of our students currently in our Entrepreneurship Program. All six students are in their small business internships for June and July. They will finish their business plans and get micro-finance at the end of July. You can help us also by making a donation to Opportunities Now Entrepreneurship School through our donation page. The link will lead you to be able to do an online donation to the YouthHOPE Myanmar project which funds the school. We are currently running the school with funding for the first two years of operation. We hope to be fully funded this year and become self sustainable within 4 years through other trainings and business ventures. This is not an easy goal that we have and can use your encouragement and support. We are thankful for every dollar and encouraging e-mail that we get.
