Shanta’s six-year partnerships honor and inspire village potential, yielding remarkable results!
Significant, measurable improvements in standard of living:
• A three-fold increase in annual family income of the poorest families
• Quality maternal health care services for all women and their babies
• 200% increase in middle and high school attendance
• Easy access to clean water and solar lighting
With an annual investment of $24 per person, we accomplish sustainable change at an exceptional benefit-cost ratio.
“Shanta Foundation has one of the most sustainable community development programs I’ve seen in Burma – for only a fraction of the money that has been poured into similar UN efforts elsewhere in the country.”
— Priscilla Clapp, former U.S. Chief of Mission in Myanmar
