CROSS-CUTTING INITIATIVES

In rural villages, urban slums and refugee encampments on the border, CPI works with local partners to integrate health and education. Projects include irrigation, toilets, clean water, cisterns, footbridges, school construction, income-generating agriculture and savings co-operatives.

Real life sprawls across categories. Tackling diarrheal diseases, for example, takes medicine, hygiene training, and toilets. A single project in isolation, even if it’s a good one, can’t by itself move a whole community forward. That’s why we work with our local partners to integrate health, education and community development.

Together, we tailor solutions to a community’s specific needs in any given village, slum, migrant worker enclave or refugee encampment. Projects include irrigation, toilets, clean water, cisterns, footbridges, school construction, income-generating agriculture and organization of financial and agricultural co-operatives.

This integrated approach responds to the interlocking challenges of real life and creates an environment conducive to sharing and leveraging resources — a key benefit of Planet Care/Global Health Access Program and Foundation for the People of Burma joining forces.
