KT Care’s small grants programme targets the most disadvantaged people including: women, children, orphans, the poor, the elderly, the sick and the disabled. The grants are channeled through local organizations such as charities, community based organizations, schools (public and monastic), group homes (for the aged and orphanages) and religious centers (such as pagodas or churches).

Leshi Township is a mountainous township located within Sagaing Region, Myanmar and also part of the Naga Self-Administered Zone. According to media agencies, Leshi Township has been suffering from periodic food shortages, a lack of vaccinations, a lack of health workers and dispensaries, a lack of medicine and medical equipment and a lack of overall general health knowledge.

‘There are 300 households in our village and most of villagers have very few health knowledge because they are not use to or accessible to read health knowledge books. So, their children are living in endanger health conditions”, U Galarset, General Secretary of Dynamic Brethren Health CSO, from Phontayat village said.

As a part of addressing the lack of health education in the community, KT Care provided the support to organize the health education training and 50 children gained greater personal hygiene and sanitation knowledge.

“We have organized health awareness raising training for 50 children on 24 and 25 April. They got aware of hand washing, living in healthy environment and other health knowledge”, he said.

KT Care’s small Grants Programme are diverse and include food, clothing, supplies, equipment, infrastructure repair and maintenance, education, capacity-building, medical supplies, hospital expenses. Community based organizations or individuals who meet criteria of small grants may contact to KT Care Foundation via info@ktcare.org or 951 527522 and +951 527516.
