Burma Action Ireland.

We went to Citywest on a Development Education trip where we were told how to set up our mini NGO's (Non-Governmental Organisations) and then met with some of the members of the NGO's that were there. Lauren and Claire from RTY interviewed one of the members of Burma Action Ireland who tells us of his difficult past in Burma and how he hopes circumstances there will improve. We learnt how we need to be more aware of what's going on in the world and not just in our own locality. Have a listen to the interview below:
