Hla Soe NaingHla Soe Naing (a) John, Co-Founder & President

Hla Soe Naing grew up in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma). He came to the United States about 12 years ago to study and graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a degree in Management Information Systems. He is currently working as a Director at Ocean Emerald Pearl Group Co., Ltd. in Yangon, Myanmar. Hla Soe Naing never thought of himself as becoming a philanthropist until he went back to Myanmar a couple of years ago and saw kids selling food and goods at a Pagoda and on the streets struggling for survival instead of playing and studying. When he came back to the States he shared his experience back home with his friends by expressing how deeply it had touched him. All he wanted to do was to find a way to help those kids and decided to look into starting a nonprofit charity group.
Hla Soe Naing truly believes that Myanmar Charity Group can make a difference for underprivileged children in Myanmar by helping any way he can during his free time.  He urges all of you out there that you can help our group by contributing a moment of your spare time or donating funds small or large.

Nick holds a Bachelor of Arts in Planning and a Masters Degree in Public Administration. Currently he and his wife, Sangaroon (aka Lynn), reside in Diamond Bar, California. Nick is an Environmental Planner and works in the field of solid waste management, focusing on recycling programs, diverting waste from disposal in landfills and being reused. His belief in conserving natural resources and serving the needs of the community led him into a life of public service. One of Nick’s favorite hobbies is gardening, both vegetables and ornamental plants. Nick believes that cultivating plants is symbolic of life — with the proper environment and nourishment, success is almost always guaranteed. My hope is that with a broad and enthusiastic group of supporters, the Myanmar Charity Group will thrive and perform numerous projects that we can all be proud to watch flourish.
