Airavati was founded in 2014 to ensure that the Ayeyarwady River flows freely for all time. This entails preserving the environment, culture, and way of life of the diverse communities that flourish along the Ayeyarwaddy’s path – from its watershed in Kachin State to its delta in the Ayeyarwaddy Region. Project activities aim at developing better livelihood options, while also providing a platform for peace building.
