This mandate encourages us to be continually innovative. In Mae Sot, each new project and activity is designed carefully together with the community right from day one in a manner that it should become self-sustainable over time.
In this way, we aim to avoid creation of dependency and to instead provide long-term livelihoods and community development solutions for forced migrants and refugees, enabling communities to help themselves. My team and I are therefore grateful every day for this opportunity to be creative in our service of refugees.
