Introduction:

A transition to democracy from a military dictatorship is never easy. In Myanmar where the reforms are done in tandem (political reform and economic reform at the same time), this makes it even more difficult for the poor working class. When you add to this the effects of a huge devastating cyclone like "Nargis" the tool
on families in the affected areas can be horrible. Myanmar is unique in the sense that it not only had to suffer natural disasters,
mismanagement of the economy and the effects of the sanctions imposed by the US and her allies.

The result is untold sufferings at the lowest levels of society where the challenge is not only to find the next meal but to escape the horrors of years of civil strife.

The focus of this project will be to help the most vulnerable segments of Myanmar society, women and young girls reeling under harsh conditions brought about by inflation, lack of proper job opportunities and lack of proper social safety nets during this transition period.
