How Mang Tha Started

At the beginning of the project in May 2005, 20 refugee women representing the different sub-ethnic groups from the Chin state were invited to be trained under the Mang Tha Project.

Today, these 20 women have successfully completed their training and are actively involved in developing the IGA project and helping other women from their community to benefit from Mang Tha.

The income generated from the sales of the products are used not only by the women, but are also channeled into their community to support the needs of vulnerable individual or families and to fund community activities e.g. children’s education programmes.
