The Diocese of Pathein operates several sustainability projects to serve the students, farmers and small business of the local community. For one such project, they have engaged Victorian Jamie Drew, who has been working with staff of the Diocese in developing permaculture education. Here, Jamie shares how traditional knowledge and new techniques have strengthened sustainable permaculture in the community.
You can visit this project on an Encounter tour to Myanmar and Thailand. Our 2019 tour is full but we are now taking reservations for 2020. Contact Robert at email@example.com for more information and to reserve your place.

Inequality is the root of social ills.
