MyJustice’s partner organisation Association François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) has been using community theatre to build legal awareness in select areas in Yangon Region and Mon State with the support of the MyJustice programme.
The film follows the theatre group as it hosts a workshop with Ward and Township Administrators and community people, as they assess the issues that are most compelling for the community they are about to address and finally they sketch out the script that moves from etching the problem to articulating the solutions. The film also shows how lawyers from the MyJustice-supported Justice Centres are brought into the community performance to address queries and doubts.
MyJustice is supporting English language training of officers in the Union Attorney General’s Office in Nay Pyi Taw in Myanmar. As of August 2017, 49 officers have completed the course. This film captures how the training has made a difference in the day-to-day work of the officers while also supporting their long-term career ambitions. More importantly, the film illustrates the potential for this intervention to have a long-lasting impact on the justice sector in Myanmar.
