After enduring a state-mandated quarantine, then responding to a local spike in coronavirus cases, followed by a resulting increase in local travel restrictions – our team worked tirelessly with local partners to ensure the trip’s objectives were met. The ADALA team successfully provided cutting-edge training and advanced media streaming equipment to journalists working on the ground to cover events within Myanmar (Burma). This is just the initial stage of what will be an enduring effort to increase their technical and media literacy capabilities.
