About Us

The Slingshot Development Fund seeks to improve the living conditions of the people from Burma who are living, or have lived, in the Tennaserim Region and their communities.

FIRST PRIORITY will be given to community based organizations, local initiatives, and emergency relief projects whose beneficiaries are the people affected by the Yadana gas pipeline (generally defined as the region between Ye and Tavoy).

SECOND PRIORITY will be given to grants that provide critical, emergency humanitarian relief to other regions of Burma, or for persons who have fled Burma across the Thai border.

Ineligible projects include political parties, governments, armed organizations, microfinance, and assistance to individual grantees.
