Community based organizations and local community groups often lack the opportunity to access development grants to initiate projects that address their needs.  KESAN works to empower rural, remote and isolated communities in Eastern Burma, most of which are unknown to funding agencies. 

Thus it is difficult to find financial support for projects initiated by these communities that improve their food security, protect community forests, community watersheds, and preserve their culture and traditional knowledge. 

You can help KESAN to work toward sustainable livelihoods and environmental security in Eastern Burma by donating to or fundraising for a specific project within your capacity.
