Development work in Myanmar
Our aim is to help Myanmar continue on a path to being a better governed, fairer and more peaceful society. A third of the population lives in conflict-affected areas, many out of the reach of the Myanmar state. The peace process is proving to be slow and could regress, leaving many people in continued danger, unable to live safe lives.
