Myo Than Tun
As I have always been interested in the social development programmes and when I learnt that the social enterprises offer social solutions using business models I decided to join this programme. I had recently had an opportunity to visit and learn about the successful Social Enterprises in UK. When I witnessed their impact on the society, the culture and environment and especially on the youth, I gain more interest in the social enterprises. In the transition period of a developing country like Myanmar I believe that the social enterprises be provide support in many ways. Therefore I will try my best to provide better consultancy to the social enterprises. I would also encourage to those who are interested to join this programme and contribute to the positive changes in Myanmar.
