The Angus McDonald Trust is a non-profit, non-political, non-governmental organisation. We specialise in finding community-based welfare solutions to the problems of poverty in some of Myanmar’s most challenging regions. We provide healthcare support for HIV and TB sufferers, and schooling and nutrition for affected children; we educate and raise awareness about treatment and prevention; and we empower patients and their families through voluntary training and micro-financing small business schemes.
What makes us different? We take a community-based approach to the problems of poverty. We do not replicate existing state-run or large-scale INGO programmes. Instead, we establish projects with a firmly local emphasis. By strengthening grassroots welfare infrastructure we not only improve lives, but develop civil society, too: helping to foster not only healthier bodies, but educated minds and empowered neighbourhoods.
