MERRY CHRISTMAS
&
HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR 2017!

 

Dear <<First Name>>,
 
We hope that you have a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends, and that this edition of our newsletter encourages you in your partnership with us.

In 2016 we've continued to equip many people within our local communities with valuable skills; and are continuing to see the ways in which their training is impacting their families, and surrounding regions. This year, we've grown with an addition to our team (Moo Ra Soe, Community Liaison Officer); developed and delivered training programs for many different organisations; extended our reach into communities through our Community Collaboration efforts; and witnessed huge progressions in our students as they grew in their self-belief and skill sets.

Thank you for your continual support for our team, and our work! May you have a safe and happy time the over Christmas and New Year holidays.

Take Care,
Global Alms Incorporated Team

Train The Trainer Course


In October, we ran another Train the Trainer course for the National Children At Risk Training with Janettepepall.com. Joined by Janette, and Judy (another International Accredited Trainer based in Hong Kong), we had a great 10 days with 6 participants from various organisations in Mae Sot.

We have found that this particular type of skills training has effectively equipped child caregivers and leaders of organisations with foundational knowledge in topics such as Trauma, Attachment, Child Development, and Positive Discipline.

All of the participants work with Children at Risk in various capacities, from skills training, and consultancy, to running children's homes in the local area. It was a privilege for us to be able to learn from them and discuss strategies on how to train others in best care practices for working with the children!

Protection Programs


Our Protection Programs are moving along steadily. We have various groups come through each week, and one group in particular has progressed to the point where they are able to test and measure their new skills in random scenarios set on the day.

Most (if not all) of our students have experienced violent altercations in their past, so it is a huge achievement for them to be able to push past the psychological barriers, and emotional trauma, in order to practice these new skills. They went up against a couple of men who were double their size, and were challenged to figure out for themselves, how to deal with the threat, and get out as soon as they can. The students were surprised by their own strength and abilities, and it has been encouraging to see them continue to improve. 

Computer Courses


During the last couple of months, we've run a series of Computer Courses with students from a local migrant learning centre and boarding house. Partnering with Burma Border Projects, it gave us the opportunity to teach them valuable, new skills.

Some of the students had never used a computer before, so we started by showing them the basics of setting up the system, the various parts and functions of the computer system, and then led them through the series of steps of using various programs. By the end of the classes, they were able to create and save new Document and Powerpoint files, demonstrate presentation skills using their Powerpoint slides, and chart results about their classmates in an Excel spreadsheet.

All of the students were very excited to learn, and did a great job following the instructions in order to complete their tasks. Thank you to Burma Border Project and New Wave Migrant Learning Centre for allowing us the opportunity to partner with you, we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Textiles Courses


During the past few months, we've seen various groups of young women come through our Training Centre in order to complete their Sewing training. Many have been able to progress all the way up to the Advanced Modules 6 & 7, which equips them with the skills to draft up block patterns for skirts and bodices; and others are making their way through the Beginner-Intermediate Modules. 

A number of our students have been able to continue practicing their new skills and progress to becoming involved in income-earning opportunities. It is always encouraging for us to catch up with our students and hear about how they've been successful in finding employment, or become a part of a small business project.

Our vision and heart for these classes has always been to equip and empower them with practical skills that can expand their opportunities to improve their livelihood, and to increase their self-belief and confidence in their own capabilities!

Shwe Zin Designs


Our Small Business Program has been progressing well with Shwe Zin Designs. This year Moo Ra has had the opportunity to fill many customers' orders by making various products such as summer dresses, shopping bags, children's dresses, children's shirt and pants sets, and aprons.

One of the most exciting things to see is the way in which this business has been able to partner up with certain projects through our Community Collaboration program. Generous sponsors have placed various orders to provide good quality clothes to people in a couple of different communities through the 'Dress A Girl' project, and pillowcase dresses have been able to be donated to the Child In-Patient Department to a local clinic that provides free health and medical care to migrants.

Suncoast Christian College


Earlier this year, we were privileged to have a group of Year 12 students from Suncoast Christian College visit us in Mae Sot, during their trip around Thailand with the Haven Foundation. They participated in a Reality Based Self Defence class and we were able to spend some time sharing our heart for the work we do here in Mae Sot. This group of students showed amazing support for us, and committed to raising funds for our organisation.

Each year, the graduating Year 12 class chooses a particular cause to give to as their Humanitarian Project. Especially understanding the hard work involved in finishing their final year of high school, we realise that they have put a lot of time, effort, and heart into raising these funds for us. We are extremely thankful that they chose Global Alms to be the benefactor of their Charity Project for 2016. Thank you so much to the Year 12 students, teachers, staff, and community of Suncoast Christian College for the incredible support you've shown to us and our work here along the border.
