Economic & Social Development
Prioritising women and marginalised groups, support displaced and conflict-affected communities to re-establish sustainable livelihoods through skills enhancement, social capital development and the creation of economic opportunities.
Humanitarian assistance is targeted to the most vulnerable and supports household capacities and strategies that contribute to food security and shelter.
Participation & Governance
Accountable and inclusive programme, governance and reconciliation processes are strengthened through increasing community leadership capacities, promoting civil society engagement and ensuring community participation.
TBC’s organisational resources and structure in Thailand and Burma/Myanmar respond to the shifting and expanding programme directions.
