World Genesis Foundation and Members of Thai Government Partner to Create New Micro-Business Projects
Micro-business Project Along Border
of Thailand and Myanmar
"The border between Myanmar and Thailand has been flooded with more than a million refugees living in unsafe conditions without food, water or a sustainable opportunities for the future. This build up has been driven by decades of conflict within Myanmar and magnified by recent natural disasters in the region. This new program, being coordinated together with members of the Thai government and other leaders in the region, will focus on developing a network and support to establish new micro-businesses in regions along the border. The micro-business project is being designed to address the longer-term need to create sustainable long-term employment opportunities in the region. This international project is being formed under the name of the "Thai Foundation" and its charter is design to preserve the rich heritage and culture of the region by ensuring each micro-business is based upon traditional indigenous products and crafts of the region. There are many organizations providing short-term aid. Our hope is to facilitate the establishment of micro-business opportunities before the aid runs out so the region can be self-sustaining, said David Lewis Anderson, President and CEO of the World Genesis Foundation.
The joint effort is already underway with members of the new initiative recruiting support and sponsors for the new micro-businesses. In addition, a four-year plan is being drafted to establish the Thai Foundation as a permanent entity in the region to ensure long-term success of the projects and to address similar needs if they should arise.
