Shae Thot is a USAID-supported six-year integrated community development project working in over 2,700 villages across Central Myanmar and Kayah State. Guided by Pact’s core approaches of civil society strengthening and enhanced self-governance, Pact, four international partners, and seven local partners provide resources and technical assistance to increase community-based knowledge, ownership, and implementation of local development priorities. The project facilitates community participation to achieve sustainable solutions in the areas of maternal and child health; livelihoods and food security; and water, sanitation, and hygiene; in addition to strengthening community governance.
