Soe - Myanmar

Every neighbourhood needs someone like 18-year-old Soe. “I became a volunteer because I want to be able to help people ...

"Red Cross help people when they are in trouble, and that’s what I want to do. I want to be able to travel to different places around my community and help people.”

Soe, who lives in a tiny village in Myanmar, is trained in first aid and also helps people apply for small business grants so they can make money to support their family. She has told all her friends they should volunteer too.
