As the economy unfolds from COVID restrictions, the job market has opened up for entry-level service jobs.  This has resulted in our target population of rural high school-level youth moving out of our Phrao area for jobs.  At the same time, as the tourist industry starts to come back, the need for staff with strong customer service orientation grows.  We have been approached by the Phrao District leadership, including Public Health, to provide English and customer service skills training to a range of shopkeepers and health care staff.  

Over the last few months, we have been able to have Finn develop a series of programs for the Warm Heart children in self-esteem, presentation skills, and English.  He has been teaching English at workshops in Phrao using barista and cooking classes as the forum to attract new students.

He has plans for a series of short courses (3-5 sessions) to test out the program for the older students such as shopkeepers and restaurant workers.

Thank you for supporting the development of these livelihoods for our rural community.

Dana, Evelind, Michael and the ewarm Heart team.
