Myeik Community

Myeik is a fishing community on the coast of Myanmar where men can spend months at sea and children often work to support their family. We have been partnering with them since 2005.

We are working to reduce health issues by providing clean water and building toilets in homes and schools. We are also encouraging parents to send their children to kindergarten by building local centres and training staff to provide the best possible education. 

We have already achieved great things in the Myeik community by preventing child-trafficking and helping pre-school children be ready for school.

We’re working with the people of Myeik to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Myeik for almost 15 years and now we’re working on some final projects to ensure the hard work will last for generations to come. We are supporting Myeik to grow in leadership, knowledge and skills so they can take over all the projects we have worked on together and are equipped to develop new initiatives to sustain a community where children can thrive. 

We plan for our partnership to continue until 2019 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
