OUR MISSION TO MYANMAR (ex Burma)
since 1998

In 1998 PARTNERS began intervening in Myanmar after a 1995 assessment. We are the one of the oldest NGO’s in this country and one of the very few French ones.

ISSUES WE WORK ON:

Access to safe water: we build tanks, drill wells, enlarge ponds …
Sanitation: we build permanent toilettes with access to water and septic tanks.
Health and hygiene: we organize education and awareness campaigns.
Rehabilitation of schools and clinics: improvements of floors and roofs, classrooms …
• Improvement of living standards and food safety: anti-hunger and anti-poverty programmes.


PARTNERS also worked on child protection (2002-2003), AIDS prevention (2005-2006), school enrollment (2008) and emergency aid after Cyclone Nargis which caused 140 000 dead and 2 million refugees in 2008.
