What we do

MyJustice, an access to justice programme, aims to support the effective delivery of legal services and equip the people of Myanmar with the knowledge, confidence and opportunities to resolve disputesfairly, equitably and justly. By prioritising vulnerable and marginalised groups, MyJustice ensures their distinct needs are factored into all aspects of programme design and delivery.

The justice landscape in Myanmar is complex, now more than ever since February 2021. Promoting access to justice in this complicated context involves strategic and pragmatic choices. MyJustice works on a range of access to justice issues, ensuring our work remains relevant and effective despite the multiple challenges faced by people in Myanmar.

How we work

We are people and civil society-centered 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 127 townships spread across 5 states and 6 regions. We have also established 13 Justice Centres offering legal aid across Myanmar, as well as a national legal helpline. This work is implemented by over fifty partners, supported and funded by MyJustice.
