Just released! Life under lockdown… and ten years of MYLP

Life under lockdown for two of the Myanmar students was beautifully illustrated in a short video by film maker, Anna Cottrell, screened to MYLP hosts and supporters recently. Thin Thin and Htu Sam are seen here with Anna, their host parent, at a table tennis and pizza party following the screening.

Life under Lockdown was accompanied by Anna’s film celebrating ten years of the MYLP which explored how alumni’s thinking and values had changed after the programme.  To view the 10th anniversary video video click on this link.
