Hope International Myanmar supports local civil society efforts to bring about their vision of the future. Joanne works with staff on organizational issues to support outreach and training efforts. Gaps in language and culture can keep NGOs spinning their wheels, and it requires a long-term commitment to processing these terms and concepts so they can be adapted to the local context and fully integrated. Joanne supports programming, M&E and advocacy efforts through training, coaching and accompaniment.
Joanne is a member of the Myanmar Organizational Development Network (MODN), and support Opportunities Now, an entrepreneurship training program for underprivileged youth in Myanmar.
