Community Development project

The Church of the Province of Myanmar (CPM) has made impressive gains over the last year in the area of institutional capacity, in order to deliver sustainable development initiatives.

At the forefront is the Provincial Development Desk, the department of the Church responsible for community development projects such as Water and Sanitation infrastructure.

For the past two years, ABM, together with four other partners of CPM, have been working with CPM to build the community development management capacity of the six dioceses that make up the Church. It is the dioceses which implement the various community development projects, such as Water and Sanitation, Gender and Disability Inclusion, Education and Livelihood Enhancement.

Gradually, these six diocesan development “desks” have grown in their capacity to manage and monitor project activities and report back to the partners. Your continuing support will assist them to continue to produce good development outcomes.

ABM is proud to be partnering with the hardworking and dedicated staff within the CPM. Your support will allow ABM to journey with them toward greater effectiveness in 2017 and, ultimately, achieve self-sustainability.
