The Project focuses its efforts on national level policies as well as the regional/state and local level policies and services in several focus regions/states.

The overall objective of the Project’s grants program is to increase legal literacy, access to justice, and the participation of marginalized populations in target regions/states. Marginalized populations are defined as citizens who are excluded or otherwise disadvantaged due to their gender, age, occupation, income level, ethnicity, disability, social status, and/or any other consideration.

The program specifically addresses the availability of legal aid to marginalized populations. Programs will be supported that promote legal aid and/or assistance, including to victim/survivors, to improve the overall access to justice in Myanmar.
