Little things make a big difference.

Take a look at our impact across Myanmar below.

Agriculture Technology Project

TDG Origins @ Than Daung Gyi

Started by: Tan Daung Gyi Natural 

Root Cause: Rural folks only needed small amounts of honey, but the honey was sold in breakable, expensive glass bottles, making it less affordable. 

Solution: Our students developed honey sticks for sale in small quantities that are affordable and easily storable.  

Results: The rural students produce the honey sticks as a form of income and with more than 1000 sticks sold in our previous campaign. Within 6 months, 50 students were trained, and 10 students and 5 teachers were employed.

Beyond financing their schools, these students want make a social impact by donating nutritious honey sticks to malnourished children in Hto Le Wah Orphanage school. They intend to donate nutritious honey sticks to 4,500 malnourished orphans in their community.
