This Month our Top Recruiter is:

Thank you to MFFT for continuing to support SISU and offering our graduates jobs.

November ended with us joining forces with Wave Money to provide 20 trainees with Entry Level Office training and a Foundation-level course in Digital & Financial Literacy. This collaboration underscores Wave Money’s steadfast commitment to nurturing a culture of growth and effecting meaningful changes while promoting digital financial literacy.

Emergency Response Training

SISU’s wrap around course (which includes comprehensive First aid training) has been updated this month to equip our trainees with the right skills to properly react in an emergency situation. This training will ensure our trainees can better protect themselves and those around them whilst reacting to the unexpected.

Padauk Kids

(SISU Garden)

Last week, our Padauk Kids had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Pun Hlaing Veggie Farm. The Pun Hlaing Farm manager welcomed our trainees and showed them the full range of vegetables that are grown there. Starting next month the Pun Hlaing Farm manager will be training our Padauk Kids at the academy where they will work on redesigning and planning the SISU veggie garden. We know it will be a fruitful partnership and we look forward to watching it grow!

“Dare to Dream”

Dare to Dream is the true story of Nyein’s brave journey, triumphing over adversity. Step-in Step-up (SISU) are proud to have trained her and given her this opportunity. Thank you Z Productions for bringing her amazing journey to life. Join us in supporting our vocational training Center in Myanmar.

Once again, SISU is pleased to be working with UNDP to deliver a series of training programs for 60 young people. We will be introducing and trialling our new Small Business / Entrepreneur course and look forward to sharing their progress with you over the coming months.

Happy Birthday!

It’s been two years since we opened the doors to our new campus and in that time we have been privileged to welcome and support over 1,000 Myanmar youths. We could not achieve any of this without our dedicated staff and our generous Donors.
