Child sponsor support
50% of population facing poverty
Conflict doesn’t just destroy buildings and homes, it destroys farming lands, livestock, and income.
People living in conflict can’t prioritise their crops or businesses, and so crop yields, incomes and food security plummet.
Faced with loss of food and income, households must make hard decisions in order to survive. The first step is often taking their children out of school to save money; the second is usually to cut meals.
You can sponsor a child in Myanmar, and you'll be helping families’ regain self-sufficiency so they no longer have to make those decisions and can provide for their children.
This can include providing livestock to begin regenerating incomes; supporting sustainable rehabilitation of agricultural land; establishing savings groups to teach, establish, and propagate financial literacy and access to small loans; empowering women with knowledge and training to earn an income; and training parents how to build a small business.
