ABOUT

What we do

 

MyJustice, an access to justice programme, aims to equip the people of Myanmar with the knowledge, confidence and opportunities to resolve conflicts fairly, equitably and justly.

We work closely with local communities to achieve a lasting impact on access to formal or informal justice systems and legal aid for poor, vulnerable or marginalised people. We develop the legal capacity of justice sector professionals, strengthen selected formal and informal justice service providers to better fulfil their mandates, while collecting and sharing data and knowledge about all these areas.

How we work

We are people-centred and encourage learning, trust and inter-community collaboration, as well as collaboration between communities and civil society organisations, legal professionals and other formal and informal justice institutions.

MyJustice works with its partner organisations to be community-driven, so that communities identify solutions to the challenges they face with us, as equal partners.

MyJustice gathers evidence from delivering its programme to understand what does and doesn't work in access to justice programming. This knowledge base on how justice is accessed and experienced is powered by evidence in the unique socio-cultural and political context of Myanmar. 

Where we work

MyJustice's works in 46 townships the are spread across 3 states and 3 regions. We have also established 6 main Justice Centres and a further 5 satellite Justice Centres in 7 cities across the Myanmar. This work is implemented by over fifty partners, supported and funded by MyJustice .
