Dear friends and colleagues of ActionAid, We hope you're doing well since the last release of our previous newsletter! As another quarter has come to an end, we would like to share with you some highlights of ActionAid's activities through the months of July to September, 2018.  It has been an eventful third quarter for ActionAid Myanmar (AAM) as we kick-started July with a warm welcome of new Country Director, Araddhya Mehtta.  We've had the British Ambassador to Myanmar visit AAM's "Safe Spaces" Project. With the support from the government representatives, several talks were held on transparency, and women safety. We have also raised awareness on issues on domestic violence, sexual harassment, gender-based violence and inequality.  As always, we are sincerely grateful for your continued support. We hope you enjoy reading our 2018 quarter three newsletter! Warm Regards, ActionAid Myanmar Newsletter Team
