Warmly Welcome to CAD! Mingalarba!
Community Agency for Rural Development (CAD) is one of five Myanmar NGOs (Not-for-profit non-governmental organizations) established by few individual persons in Myanmar during 2000-2004 under the Burmese Military rule (State Law and Order Restoration Council) led by Senior General Than Shwe. CAD is founded as a Catholic faith oriented Myanmar NGO in May 4, 2004 by Joseph Kung Za Hmung @ Win Hlaing Oo. The founder of CAD is a devoted Catholic Christian. The charity organization has been implementing a wide range of programs in WASH, agriculture and rural livelihoods, education, environment, health services, car road and bridge construction, nursery (early child care education), school feeding, research, capacity building, rural infrastructure development, anti-venom bank and health; always targeting the most needy communities in Myanmar in line with Catholic teachings.
The main livelihood is agriculture: farmers make their living following the traditional slash and burn system of shifting agriculture.
