M&AOSB Partners with Two New Community-based Volunteers
Yin Mon Aye
Myint & Associates Offshore Supply Base Ltd. (M&AOSB) is now well into the second year of its social investment program aimed at creating and enhancing value for the business and communities within the project area. Expanding on the successes of last year’s program in the primary host community, Nanttharpu Village Tract, M&AOSB will now work closely with representatives from two neighboring communities, bringing the total to four community-based partners within the project area.
M&AOSB is committed to driving inclusive economic growth in areas where we operate. To realize this objective, this year’s social investment program is focused on building the knowledge and skills of local community members to strengthen company-community partnerships in the long term. “Achieving this objective means that we will need to work closely with the communities every step of the way to ensure that we embed sustainability into the program core. Involvement of the community-based volunteers ensure just that,” said Daw Kyisin Htin Aung, Corporate Affairs Manager.
Nga Yoke Kaung
Daw Kay Khaing Moe, 39, is an active member of the community, volunteering at multiple Nga Yoke Kaung-based organizations, including the Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) and Myanmar Red Cross Society (MRCS). From 2016 to 2017, Daw Kay Khaing Moe worked at the field offices of Help Aid International in Nga Yoke Kaung, strengthening community capacity to reduce risks from natural disasters in the entire region. She is passionate about community development and aspires to work long term in this field. “Through my partnership with M&AOSB, I believe that I will bring benefits to our community,” said Daw Kay Khaing Moe.
Kyawy Chaing Village Tract
Kyi Min Khant, 23, completed his studies at B.E.H.S. Nga Yoke Kaung in 2014. Kyi Min Khant is now pursuing an undergraduate degree in history (distance learning) at Pathein University and works part-time for his family business. By becoming a community-based volunteer, Kyi Min Khant hopes to develop his interpersonal communication skills and learn about CSR through hands-on experience. “When a new business like M&AOSB comes to our area, I believe that our community will benefit from economic growth in the long term. I hope to witness change over time, “said Kyi Min Khant.
