Since 2013, the Myanmar National Community Driven Development Project (NCDDP) has put people at the centre of decision making. VNG International has been involved in the project since 2015 onwards and now assists four Townships; Bilin, Chaungzon, Tanintharyi and Paung. The project provides financing for poor rural communities to benefit from improved access to basic infrastructure and services. VNG International provides institutional support and technical assistance to four township offices. Furthermore, we provide technical assistance to the village and village tract level to familiarise communities with participatory approaches in the process of establishing inclusive village and village tract project development committees.
