Green NGO seeks sustainable development via small grants

Environmental NGO Mangroves for the Future will disburse small grants for social development in Taninthayi Region, the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry said Friday. Four organizations will be chosen to deliver the grants of between US $2,000 and $2,500, said Daw Zin Myo Thu, a national level coordinator of MFF. An official from the Department of Forestry said, “Organizations to implement regional development tasks are required to collect data on what should be done for regional development before grants will be given to them.” Small grants, which aim to promote living standards of local people and sustainability of natural resources in coastal areas, will also be available for other coastal regions later, the ministry said.
