Explaining villagers on our project(1)
As we could get agreement with the EAG(Ethnic Armed Group=KNU) and the KSG(Kayin State Government) BHN started the works for the 2nd project of installing 6,138 solar systems in the 65 villages in the KNU areas from January this year.
The locations of the villages are spread in wide and deep country areas and the access to most of the villages are very difficult to transport materials in rainy season.
Hence, the contractors are concentrating their work force to accelerate the installation works to finish all the works before the rainy season staring late May.
As the number of the school students increasing we could feel the improvement of the life of villagers and we scaled up the system size for the computer study room. They also built a new dormitory for the students to slay overnights and study after school hours.
As recently as this February another EAGs signed the Ceasefire Agreement with the government of Myanmar and many dignities from inside & outside of the country attended to attest the signing ceremony.
It was also known that the people and leaders in these EAG villages were watching our activities next door to them and decided to make the ceasefire agreement knowing,after ceasefire agreement, that they will be also become beneficiaries of the projects such as we are doing in the KNU areas.
We are now starting to discuss with EAG & KSG for the 3rd plan of our project.
