    Protecting our teammates from the hard driving rain

    Day 189

    When It Rains it Pours

    I’m back! Did you miss me? Today we will be jumping right back into our 365 at the Thai-Myanmar border!

    Yesterday, I mentioned that the rain in Thailand is for real. The combination of the long travel distances and the rainy season can make for extremely unpleasant conditions for the staff. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, many travel by motorcycle, which makes the rain extremely uncomfortable!

    Our staff knew what they needed…rain coats!

    “I go to community sites and plantations and I will wear the rain coat,” said Myo Kyaw Kyaw, one of our Alight teammates. “It is good for the motorcycle to keep me dry.”

    Dry motorcycle rides are the way of the future for our team here now!


    Meet Jon!

    Hello hello! My name is Jon Atwell and I’m the Roving Correspondent at Alight. So much of what I do involves going to program sites and spending time with my colleagues around the world, and the people we serve. I get to capture photos, create video, and share stories of the incredible people I meet. And, I’ve gotten the chance to do the doable with many of our teams in many places. This time around, I’m so excited to tell you about our incredible team in Thailand!
