The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) held a Workshop for Korea Volunteer program (WFK) in Yangon on 28th October.
The WFK programme of KOICA focuses on improving human resources in the developing world and promoting mutual understanding between South Korea and other countries.
The program has dispatched 2,000 volunteers to 46 countries, including Myanmar, where 65 KOICA-WFK volunteers are currently performing their missions at 52 organisations under 9 ministries in various sectors such as agriculture, IT, livestock, sports and education.
The workshop aims to strengthen the relationship between KOICA and respective governmental organisations. In this event, participants heard presentations of KOICA and the WFK program, World Friend Advisor (WFA), and discussions on WFK volunteers.
In addition, a new programme of Sae Maul Undong (SMU) specialists, which began this year, was introduced so that the area of WFK volunteers can more easily be expanded according to the demands of the local people.
The workshop was successfully accomplished with the presence of Chief Representative of KOICA Myanmar Office, Dr. Shin Euicheol, Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs Dr. Nanda Hmun and 85 government representatives.—GNLM
