Meet Ma Phyo – Program Graduate

Ma Phyo no longer receives nutrition support from The Charis Project. This is because she is now stronger physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially and ready to step forward to a better future for her children and family. "I always pray for you. And I want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’m very happy because of your help. Every night I pray, I pray for you, for the people who have helped my family."

Update on the Farm

The Charis Project, has had to grow up and firmly establish its focus and clarity of mission. The mission is to "heal families, strengthen families, and keep families together." While we could tell a true story of how the Farm accomplished these goals, that story was longer than it should be.

The Charis Project Family Crisis Holistic Intervention Model

Strong Women, Strong Families

Debt Free and At Peace

In four short months they have mixed our help with their strength and are now debt free.

The Village Savings and Loan Program

Quite often families facing emergencies are forced to borrow money from loan sharks at extremely high interest rates that can cripple a family with debt for years to come. Already, in the villages where the VSLA has been established, three families have been saved from needing to go to loan sharks to borrow money, at 20%/month.

Do You Want My Baby?

Imagine how you would feel, living in a tiny bamboo hut on stilts, above a mosquito infested swamp/sewer, in a crowded village strewn with refuse, where you live at the mercy of the landlord, who is also your boss, barely able to feed the children you already have, to find out you were expecting another.
