I have been working with Burma Humanitarian Mission for the past three years to get critical support to Girl Determined, a leadership project designed to assist girls ages 12-17 to avoid the pitfalls of trafficking, dangerous labor and other forms of violence, by facilitating girls’ recognition of their personal and group potential. The Board and staff of BHM have proven committed and responsible in their work. They are knowledgeable about the reality here in Burma and on its borders and have strong connections with incredible local leaders who get support and supplies where they are most needed. Thank you BHM! Keep up the great work.

Our organization, Alternative Gifts International, features BHM in our catalog and online fundraising. We chose to partner with BHM because their mission is vital to the health of the refugees, and they operate an organized and efficient program. I recently inquired about a visit to their sites in Burma and learned how challenging their work is, both physically and politically. If you wish to raise awareness and funds for this great project you can launch a personalized virtual campaign to share with family friends by visiting our website www.alternativegifts.org.
