Four years on: what impact has the JTI Foundation had in Myanmar?
Following devastating floods in 2015, and the rebuilding of communities following civil war – watch this short film to see how the JTI Foundation has worked with its local partners in Myanmar to provide water, sanitation and hygiene facilities, helping to improve the lives of 62,000 people.
Why water for the JTI Foundation? “Clean water to drink and wash is the foundation upon which larger change can take place;” comments Stefan Rissi, Managing Director of the JTI Foundation. “By protecting water resources you build resilience to disaster; and by improving access to safe drinking water and sanitation you have the potential to strengthen vulnerable communities and thus contribute directly to their sustainable development.”
