Each year, ADRA Myanmar staff from both the field and support office, join together for a capacity building based staff retreat. This year we went international and travelled to Bangkok, Thailand staying at the Avani Atrium Hotel from 10-14 March.
Capacity Building and training activities included; Safety and Security training, Gender training, project presentations by Project Managers, Fraud and Corruption training, Finance training, HR training, and the launch of the new ADRA rebrand.
Mark Webster (Regional Director), Brendon Irvine (Program Director) and Ronald Sandoval (Finance Director) from the ADRA Asia Regional Office also attended the retreat on certain days to present topics on; Servant Leadership Training, Network Training and breaking down the new ADRA motto (Justice, Compassion, Love).
Staff also visited the Seventh Day Adventist School Mission and Lumphini Park for group activities, games and fellowship.
A special dinner was held on Thursday night 13 March in celebration of ADRA Myanmar’s 35th Anniversary. Each project performed a special number which mostly featured traditional dances and songs.
