Read how working with the Karen has changed the lives of volunteers

Tyler (Georgia, USA)

“In 2013, I met Dr. Mitch and began working for EMA in 2014. Since this project began, it has been an incredible journey. What started as an idea, a vision, began to rapidly morph into a larger and larger project with many moving parts and I found myself thrust into positions that I would have never imagined. To have been part of a story so much larger than my own, a story that I deeply believe has the potential to significantly change the world of healthcare for the Karen people, well I shouldn’t have to ask for anything more in life than that.”

Jennifer (USA)

“I will forever be grateful for my experience with the students and full-time staff here. The students work so hard to understand the content and always have such a willing and joyful attitude. The full-time staff work tirelessly to ensure the best training possible and I am thankful to have been a part of it. God is doing powerful things through this staff and in these students. The ripples that are starting through this program will no doubt turn into waves.”

Allison (Tacoma Church, USA)

“My experience at EMA was remarkable. The program is amazing, in the fact that these students, with so much potential, from all around Myanmar are being given the opportunity to get a good education in a safe learning environment. An education that won’t just better themselves, but one they can use to help each other. Everyone here was welcoming and loving. The friendships that were made, I don’t doubt, will last a lifetime.”
