Networking Event with Scholars

On November 8, KT Care Foundation organized a networking event with scholarship students from KT Care in Pathein. The event was held with three major objectives. These objectives include improving engagement between KT Care and scholars, sharing them about the current activities of KT Care Foundation and how they can contribute to KT Care Foundation in the future, and how KT Care can support them to realize their dreams. 

KT Care’s deputy director opened the event by giving a brief introduction about the history and current programs of KT Care. Consequently, each staff from KT Care explained their responsible programs and activities. Scholars were eager to listen to the story of KT Care and many questions were raised from the students. 

During the event, scholars were divided into three groups and assigned to discuss about what they got from the event, how they are going to use the knowledge they got from the event and their feedback to KT Care Foundation. One representative from each group gave a short presentation after the discussion. It was insightful to get the ideas and feedback from the scholars.
