What a wonderful praying room and The Cross!
You can see these if you go to Prayer Mountain in Thandaunggyi, Myanmar.
There are unique praying rooms on the way to the top of the mountain.
Where 90 percent of the people are Buddhists, Thandaunggyi is very special area where the majority of people are Christians. Seoul YWCA has a meaningful education project here.
Seoul YWCA is giving the education program for local women with Myanmar YWCA which is supported by Samsung and Community Chest of Korea.
There are 4 lessons which are Sewing, ICT, Entrepreneur, and Gender for 100 local women in Thandaunggyi. World fellowship department of Seoul YWCA has been there to control the project smoothly.
Women who got these lessons could earn the profit while learning sewing.
Some participants could make profits from their own handicrafts through the training. The participants ' aspiration to contribute economic revitalization of the local community was surprising and touching.
Due to the difficulties in the power supply, electricity is often lost and traditional stereotypes about women kept bothering participants. There are several obstacles, but the enthusiasm of the women to get the proper education is soaring. Hopefully, they could bear fruit to become the leader of Myanmar.
