Myanmar (Burma)

Nouvelle Plantète is active in Myanmar since 2007 after a journey by the founder of the organization in 2006. The first project supported was the accommodation of young ethnic minority girls in the region of lake Inle. Gradually there have been more and more projects supported and Myanmar is today one of the most important countries of intervention of Nouvelle Planète.

Operational Strategy
After five years of intervention in the region of Bagan, lake Inle and Kyauktane, Nouvelle Planète has decided to reorientate its activities according  to the country’s development. Since 2014, Nouvelle Planète is active in the Chin state and Sagaing Division located in the western part of the country at the border with India, and more specifically in the district of Tonzang and Kalay. This region is neglected by the government, for it is only inhabited by ethnic minorities and is difficult to access. The needs are numerous, the official statistiques classify this region as the poorest in the country.
