WHAT WE DO IN MYANMAR
We strengthen the resilience of rural and urban populations while responding to humanitarian needs. We use integrated approaches, including emergency planning support, climate-resilient agriculture activities, and improving access to contingency funds. We also build safe shelters for resettled families and for internally displaced people who reside in camps.
We make farmers more resilient by linking them to loan and saving groups. This gives them access to village funds in times of stress and adversity. Most of the groups are either mixed male and female or only female. This allows women to have more decision-making power when it comes to resources and how to mobilise them.
WHERE WE WORK IN MYANMAR
We work in Kayin State, Mandalay division Yangon Region, Magway Region, Kachin and North Shan States.
