    Over the past few years my passion for the people of Burma and their situation has grown and developed alongside my reading and research of the country. I am a dance teacher in Scotland, with vast experience working with young people and children and adults with a range of additional support needs and disabilities. I spent my first 8 years in Thailand and have visited to volunteer in; Homes for the disabled, a Burmese refugee camp, and Karen schools. Last year I ran a three week dance performance project in the Philippines working with street kids.

    I am committed to the people of Burma and want to serve them on a long term basis. I am a dance teacher by trade but am extremely interested and keen to do ANY aid/humanitarian work.
    I have looked into and am in the process of applying to a Christian orgainisation; however I am ideally looking for an organisation which is more focus on meeting the initial needs of and investment in the people of Burma. I would really appreciate if you could advise me in regards to working for the ever precious ‘forgotten land’.

    Yours faithfully,

    Mimi Mackenzie
