The Irrawaddy Delta Health Education Project

The aim of the prevention project I.N.G.E. of Artemed Stiftung was to work with local villagers to educate the population in the Irrawaddy Delta about health issues and to promote the development of the villages.

I.N.G.E. stood 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 was, on the one hand, to raise everyone's awareness of hygiene and health and, on the other, to work with the villagers to consider how life in the village could be improved in the most meaningful way. In joint meetings with representatives of the village, we considered what was most urgently needed and desired.

The project was carried out in cooperation with Meikswe Myanmar , a Burmese organization that we have known for many years and has a lot of experience in prevention work and village development.

During the project period, support was provided to three villages in the Irrawaddy Delta that wanted toilets and a waste disposal system. These projects were very successful and were subsequently extended to other villages.

We are delighted to have successfully completed this project.
