Htoo

Burmese refugee woman Htoo who makes handcrated soy blend fair trade candles at Prosperity Candle
"My dream is to complete my education and become a chef."

Fleeing on foot through the jungle, Htoo last saw her native Burma (Myanmar) when she was 4 years old. She and her family were forced out of their home by soldiers, forever leaving behind the life they knew and loved.

After 13 years in a refugee camp in Thailand, Htoo became eligible to relocate to the United States to start a new life. At age 20, Htoo joined Prosperity Candle as an apprentice candlemaker and earned her first paycheck.

Now with her own resources, Htoo has learned valuable job skills and is completing her high school education, the first step toward her dream of becoming a chef.
