Ongoing Alleys

The alley garden project on 27th street was started in July 2016, and aims to demonstrate the possibility of utilising wasteland for recreation and social cohesion purposes. Yangon has many kilometers of back alleys, but at present these are solely used as rubbish dumps, attracting pests. We aim to demonstrate how Yangon’s many alleyways could be used as clean and healthy recreational spaces featuring gardens, street art and children’s play grounds as well as recycling and composting techniques.

Ongoing Alleyways

we are now planning to expand the project to another locations, including downtown yangon and other townships. they are going to start after this rainy season.

I think the work you are doing with Doh Eain is amazing. I am usually cynical of a lot of the NGOs on Burma. Even though well intentioned, most get so caught up in visions and mission statements and paper-work that rarely any result is seem on grassroots. I love the progress that Doh Eain is making. As a donor, I felt that my money was used in the exact way that you promised. I want to applaud your work and thank you for all that effort - A donor of the Alley Garden Project
