Kyi Kyi Aung is the director of the Women's Department of the Myanmar Baptist Convention and today is her birthday! Kyi Kyi is a long time GW global partner. While she has many responsibilities as director, the economic development projects she oversees are the most familiar to Global Women.

This year GW has helped support two classes of Community Health Care workers. In June, 38 girls completed the six-month course. The second class will begin tomorrow (July 8th). This summer 22 alumnae of the training attended a refresher course. GW has also supported computer and sewing training offered through the Women's Department. Kyi Kyi shared that one girl had such a limited education she was struggling to complete the sewing class. The teacher was patient with her and persevered until she finished the training and is now running her own sewing business! Will you join us in praying for health, stamina, and wisdom for Kyi Kyi in her demanding position? Why don't you leave a birthday message in the comments that will encourage Kyi Kyi? We will make sure that she gets it! You could also make a donation to GW in her honor and we will share your thoughtfulness with Kyi Kyi as well!
