Holistic Development Project III (HDP III)

This ongoing project seeks out communities in Kachin to partner with in making themselves healthy, food secure and leading their own sustainable development. The holistic approach taken by World Concern will involve working alongside community participants to improve their health behaviors and diet. Community groups (village development committee members and community-based organization members) are developed to facilitate change in the areas of gender equality, reconciliation, inclusion of people living with disabilities (PLWD), environmental protection, and protection against abuse and exploitation.


Activities include: health technician coaching of community health workers; health care group trainings; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) promotion; provision of home garden start-up materials and trainings; capacity building trainings; workshops on social and environmental protections; and self-reliance trainings.
