Born along the Burmese-Thai border, Sai Aye spent her first 10 years moving from village to village with her family to find safety, food and shelter. Her parents had fled their ancestral home years earlier to escape the Burmese military regime.
They found security in a refugee camp, and when she was old enough Sai Aye registered with UNHCR. In 2011, after 11 years in the camp, she was given the opportunity to build a new life in the U.S.
Sai Aye joined Prosperity in 2015 and is joyfully creating a brighter future for her daughter. She hopes someday to visit her parents and siblings who are still in the refugee camp.
