Year three: the last year the students partake in an internship with an NGO or CBO to work with them for our society. .
Here is a short information from one of GBS students named A.
"My big dream is to be a good leader in my community." A said that BGS was one big step to reach his goal. GBS opens his eyes to see the world, open his heart to sympathy the other and open his mind to think critically. He has learned about leadership, community development, conflict reconciliation and peace building from GBS. He would like to see Burma without civil war and all ethnic groups live in peaceful and harmony life.
This is one of dreams among GBS students. We all have dreams that we are going back to Burma to make a change.
