The Amazing Project - Stepping Back to Burma
 
Political freedom may be coming to Burma, but not freedom from addiction. Drug dealers abound in lawless Burma. YABA (methamphetamines) is the new kid's candy in Burma. Wrapped in pretty coloured paper and sold for the same price as a sweet, the YABA trade inside Karen State has taken off. "The only people not using the drug are babies and old people", said a well know Karen leader. To help young people understand drugs. To educate. To present alternatives. "A free mind cannot be destroyed". project reportread updates from the field

DARE Sustains: Agrow Therapy-Feeding Ourselves
 
Sustainability is the catch word of International Development and Aid. Often it is meaningless in areas affected by war as people have been unable to sustain themselves for years, if not decades. As result, organizations working with war affected people often become dependent on International Aid to operate. This dependence sets up a power dynamic that can keep organizations from realizing their potential and ultimately their autonomy.
Rebuild Flooded Burma Refugee Camp Recovery Centre
 
The Thai floods of 2011 started in the north of Thailand, where DARE Network works in 5 Burmese Refugee camps on the Thai/Burma Border. During this rainy season our DARE Centre buildings were badly damaged. We have already rebuilt 1 Centre but need your help with 4 more. DARE (Drug and Alcohol Recovery and Education) Network provides highly successful community-based prevention education and non-medical culturally appropriate addiction treatment to the communities of 150,000 Burmese Refugees. project reportread updates from the field
