The Village 

Along the coast of Rakhine State in western Myanmar rest many villages inaccessible to most people. Lacking education, healthcare, and sustainable income, the people in these villages have suffered generations of extreme poverty.

In February of 2014, TCD Training was conducted in Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine State for 35 people interested in implementing TCD in the surrounding area.  At the end of 2014 these individuals returned for a second level of training and enthusiastically shared what they’ve learned from doing TCD in their villages. Building new latrines and fixing up unsafe and unsanitary latrines, as well as building concrete paths between villages were just a couple beginnings for these villagers.
