[ePrayer – Pray for the development of Mon villages in Myanmar]
Give thanks for a smooth visit into Mon villages by CEDAR staff and three overseas trainers who conducted training on Watershed management & Agro-forestry and production of EM (Effective Micro-organisms). Based on findings and discussion from the training, we will present result to advocate at higher level. In the past 5 years, local villagers observed there is an obvious decrease in water level and volume at different water sources which are caused by logging and gold mining activities by the business groups. CEDAR and local partner will continue to facilitate local villagers in planting of trees, protection of water source, and give environmental conservation lessons to students at the new school.

Pray for wisdom and discernment of local partner and villagers as they implement watershed management and agro-forestry activities and lobbying work.
Pray that local peace leader will make a balance on economic development and management of natural resources.
[ePrayer – Pray for the Myanmar resettlement project]
In the past few decades, there were continuous conflicts between the Karen and Burmese government army inthe mountainous areas in Mon State, causing countless deaths and injuries. A year ago, the Burmese government went through a big reform and ceased the fire, bringing peace to Karen people. CEDAR supports local partner to implement post-conflict resettlement project there.
Give thanks that 4 ladies from a protection and resettlement programme in Mon State were selected to spend 6 months in India to receive training on solar engineering! They are the first group in the country to receive this training opportunity. Three agricultural experts will carry out a habitat assessment and data analysis to provide discussion and develop action plans on watershed management and agroforestry to 4 project villages in Mon State.
Pray for the Myanmar resettlement project:
Pray for the ladies’ adjustment, time of learning and their families back home.
Pray that through the exchange and training local villagers and leaders can result in a blueprint of how best to protect and improve the water quality and other natural resources in the watershed.
Pray for partner’s logistical arrangement and coordination with local leadership and related authorities.
