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.

A full TCD project in the village of Myat Hlae was officially launched in January 2015 as a model for many other communities to follow. Now our workers are beginning to expand to other villages in clusters in Rakhine State
