    New Southern Kamoo Rice Paddy

    One of our Children’s Home (currently of 50 children) has been hit hard by the pandemic and the civil conflict in Myanmar. But we have an amazing opportunity to create better food security and sustainability for them by purchasing a 3.4 acre rice paddy!

    New Children’s Home

    Two of INfire’s church leaders in Myanmar know firsthand what it means to be at risk for child soldiering. They are actually both former child soldiers and graduates from INfire’s education programs. And they have built some amazing connections that will give the same opportunity to dozens of more children just like them.

    Responding to Myanmar’s Crisis

    Explosions, hundreds of them, popped off across the country the past weeks… If you’ve been following along as the conflict in Myanmar has unfolded since February, you know that thousands have been displaced from their homes, hiding in the jungles, and struggling to survive.

    Four Generations of Hope for Myanmar

    When we are forced as people into choosing war over nonviolence, it is a terrible line we cross. Myanmar (Burma) is crossing such a line in its civil conflict with the army. Buddhists (most of the Burmese) and Christians (many of the indigenous ethnics) who lived against violence now are making hard choices. I do not envy them.

    Understanding Myanmar’s Crisis

    China is in everyone’s global spotlight, even though Myanmar is the one bleeding. How far will China extend its interests? Will it take a clear and active role?

    Burma’s Kachin Face Human Trafficking Threat Along Chinese Border (VIDEO)

    This touching and informative video highlights the unthinkable reality faced by tribal women in unstable regions, such as the Upper Mekong. Women and children easily become involved in fighting and human trafficking - even those who are lucky enough to escape those situations, must live with the trauma for the rest of their lives. There are also many children born to trafficked women who will grow up never knowing their fathers and may fall back into the same cycle that trapped their mothers.

    Country Study: Burma, Part 1

    Project: AK-47 is committed to reclaiming children from armed conflict, wherever they may be. In one sense, a child soldier is a child soldier, but we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the differences between the countries we work in. It may seem obvious, but a child soldier in Burma does not have the same experience as a child in the Philippines. Like the rest of us, these children are in large part defined by their cultures. This child is an individual, a product of his context—for better or worse—and it is our goal to work within this culture to restore the child to a life free from violence.
