Our projects are sponsored separately by individuals, companies, NGOs and other organisations. Some projects are small, some are medium, and some are large. The smaller ones will be up and running quite quickly, the larger ones may well run for some years.
Even if we’re starting small here, with pilot projects in the main cities of Yangon and Mandalay, we will in the coming years add many different bokashi projects in all shapes and forms to our portfolio.

Want to help us spread bokashi in Myanmar by sponsoring a project?
Contact us so we can discuss it with you! As we start up new projects, we can match your organization to a suitable project. We’ll make you part of the story: you’ll be signposted as the official sponsor for the project and we will provide you updates through our blog and social media posts that will help you share the story. For the larger projects we’re planning to make film updates along the way for you to share. If you’re based locally, you might even like to come and join us in our field work.
Small, medium and large
Which type of project do you want to invest in?
We’ve grouped them into yellow, green and red — the colors of the Myanmar flag!
Small-scale community projects involving a number of households on a suburban or village street, a restaurant kitchen, a school or monastery group. We provide the bokashi buckets/barrels and bokashi bran and startup the project on-site where possible. We’ll provide ongoing support and encouragement by phone or similar, and connect them to our community of people running similar bokashi projects.
Sponsor a micro-project: USD 100
Medium-size community projects, such as starting up bokashi on an urban street with 10-40 households involved. Other examples would be community garden, schools and monasteries. We provide the bokashi buckets/barrels and bokashi bran for the startup of the project. We’ll spend 2-3 days on-site to get the project started and go out to follow-up its progress regularly during the year.
Sponsor a yellow project: USD 1,000
Larger community projects, for example starting up bokashi in a rural village, a larger urban community or an urban farm where more people are involved and a structured training program is needed. We provide the bokashi buckets/barrels and bran for the startup of the project, along with initial workshops and regular follow-up and coaching to make sure the project runs smoothly. For projects like this, it’s important we keep close to the community during the first year and make sure their bokashi project becomes permanent.
Sponsor a red project: USD 5,000
Much larger community recycling and urban greening projects that will run for some years. An example would be our bokashi project alongside the Mandalay markets. Our involvement will focus around a “bokashi yard” which we establish in the heart of the community; a location which will be the hub for local organic waste collection, bokashi and soil production, training and study visits, development of a market garden/nursery and skill development for people involved in the project.
Sponsor a green project: USD 10,000-20,000 per year.
