Changing the lifestyle of Myamarese in Burma after a 50 years civil war known as the longest of our history.

The Burma children have the right to the freedom that would contribute for a better Burma lifestyle. West 'should respond to Burma change'. Yes we can as little as a little chicken, that could offer a daily egg to the Burma children.
Not all Burmese can have an egg each day to feed them selves.
US, UN hail nascent Myanmar reforms
YANGON: Senior US and UN officials said they were encouraged by nascent reforms in Myanmar, with
Washington saying it will look at new incentives to spur change including the expansion of microfinance.
MICRO FINANCE PROGRAM IS OF HELP TO 90% of the Burma population depending on Agriculture for survival.
Provide examples to follow....
A newly-constructed pig farm in Burma is set to provide income for local farmers effected by Cyclone Nargis.
The tropical cyclone struck in May 2008, destroying much of Burma's agriculture industry, on which it is dependent.
The emerge poverty free pig breeding programme will help the local community by establishing a dependable income that can be expanded.
When Cyclone Nargis struck Southern Burma, over 2.5 million Burmese were affected. For many farmers, the cyclone swept away their entire livelihoods causing a humanitarian emergency with long-term implications.emerge poverty free shipped emergency supplies immediately after the cyclone struck and has since been involved in reconstruction projects to help get communities back on their feet.
To ensure asssistance is long-term emerge poverty free is now involved in developing sustainable income-generating projects.
The pig breeding farm is in one of the worst hit rural areas, just 1 hour's drive from capital city Yangon.
The benefits of raising breeding pigs in Burma are numerous. In a land where stable, long-term employment opportunities are hard to come by, pig farming guarantees a steady income as demand for pork is high and fairly constant. The price of pork products has nearly doubled since the cyclone, making pig farming an attractive option.
In the current market, a healthy pig can be sold for around £1= $ 1.54 Au / per kilogram. A Burmese pig typically goes to market when it reaches between 90 and 105 kg, therefore fetching around £100.= $154.00 Au. In its first year the farm is expected to produce 200 pigs.
The experience of running a farm allows farmers to develop valuable agricultural skills, increasing their chance of escaping a life of poverty and hardship.
"After the cyclone it was very difficult just to find enough food to eat", said Chris, one of the many local farmers who stand to benefit from the scheme. "But now thanks to the building of this farm I can provide for my family and we can see a great future ahead."

More about emerge poverty free involvement.
emerge poverty free is funding a teacher training programme in Burma through our local partner, Kids Alive.
Post-Cyclone Nargis Support
Following the completion of emerge poverty free's emergency intervention for victims of Cyclone Nargis, emerge poverty free is continuing to work in partnership with local organisations within Burma to assist communities as they rebuild infrastructure and livelihoods in the aftermath of the disaster.
In 2008 emerge poverty free provided emergency intervention for victims of the devastating Cyclone Nargis in Burma. In 2010 emerge poverty free's work in Burma continues, most recently with the building of four new classrooms at Grace School project and an accompanying teaching training programme. This has enabled the school to extend its intake from primary school aged children to those of secondary age. Nearly half of all children in Burma are not enrolled in school.
That why, I am looking to meet with any volunteer with willingness to help the Burma children, sitting as a board member by my side , we will be planning, a
