North Htan Kone village, Myanmar
Zar Gyi, 26, breastfeeds her child during a break from her work in a rice paddy. A community-based project to promote exclusive breastfeeding in 574 villages in Myanmar began in 2010. Nearly 500 staff and volunteers were trained in breastfeeding promotion and went door-to-door to educate women about the benefits of breastfeeding in the Phyu and Oaktwin townships.
