The prevention project I.N.G.E. of the Artemed Stiftung takes care of the health education of the population in the Irrawaddy Delta and the development of the villages in cooperation with the local villagers.
I.N.G.E. stands not only for the name of the late Inge Seefried, whose last wish was to work intensively for the people in the Irrawaddy Delta, but also for "Innovative Non Government Education".
The aim of the project is, on the one hand, to raise each individual's awareness of hygiene and health and, on the other hand, to consider together with the villagers how life in the village can be improved in the most meaningful way. In joint meetings with representatives of the village, they consider what is most urgently needed and desired. This could be toilets, for example, or ways of disposing of waste.
The project is carried out in cooperation with Meikswe Myanmar a Burmese organisation we have known for many years with a lot of experience in prevention work and village development.
In a first project period, three villages in the Irrawaddy Delta were supported, which wanted to have toilets on the one hand and a system for waste disposal on the other. Since the projects have been very successful, the work is now to be extended to other villages.
We also appreciate your support for the project!
