Community Agency for Rural Development (CAD) is a registered Myanmar non-governmental organization. Our CAD founder, Joseph Kung Za Hmung @ Win Hlaing Oo founded this organization on 4th May 2004 sooner he left from Catholic Major Seminary. The founder is a Chevening Fellow from University of York in 2010. He was previously eager to be a Catholic priest. He had stayed in the Catholic seminary from 1990 to 2004 to become a priest but he was not chosen by Jesus Christ through his superiors that he was asked to leave from the seminary. No sooner he left from the seminary, he made novena to the Holy Spirit to guide him what kind of life he should live out. After 9 days of prayers, he was inspired by the Holy Spirit to do humanitarian works in Myanmar.
He was graduated with L.L.B. from Yadanarpon University of Mandalay in 2014 and he held his Master degree of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Assumption University in 2018.
Therefore, in guidance of the Holy Spirit and relying on the grace of God and with the paternal support and encouragement of Archbishop Charles Bo, he darely set up this organization to address the past catastrophes in his native region lest the local people will face such community problems in the future. Now he is extending his charitable work from his village to the whole country of Myanmar. In CAD General meeting on 14 January 2016, we unanimously changed our vision and missions for coming 5 years’ commitment for betterment of our people of Myanmar from 2016 to 2021.
