The fourth edition of the Zawgyi Premier Farmers’ Rewards Program was held across five villages of Nyaung O, Nga Thar Yout and Pakkoku from 22 – 24 February 2017.

The highlight of the program was an enlightening series of workshops that saw Zawgyi team up with representatives of a leading international palm sugar buying company, to motivate farmers to say no to child labour, and to inspire them to adopt safe work practices for palm sugar harvesting. The events were rounded off with award presentations to farmers, and donations of bookshelves and educational books to school libraries for the welfare of local communities.
