What's happening with Care for Peace Projects
On June 1, 2016 our Kyauk Phyu partners officiated at the Groundbreaking Ceremonies for what will be the Care for Peace Community Development and Health Center. The Center, designed by Derek Parker, A.I.A., Care for Peace Board Architectural Advisor, will be used to provide health and medical care, and will be the catalyst for developing village-driven micro-enterprise programs. Practical public health services, sustainable agriculture for food and income, sensible employment, and inexpensive energy systems will make the Healthy Village a powerful resource for sustainable growth and stability. The site is being excavated by the MSP/Caterpillar Company in Yangon that has donated all grading services to the Care for Peace Project...right now!
Planning is underway...right now! for a late Fall, 2016 opening our Care for Peace "Hub" Office and Warehouse in Yangon where we will centralize support services to our two facilities
