Disability Community in Myanmar

Disability Coalition Building in Myanmar

From 2014 - 2016, USICD joined as an implementing partner in supporting cross-disability coalition building in Myanmar with USAID and World Learning.  USICD Executive Director, David Morrissey, visited the country in 2015 to meet DPO leaders and provide a training on disability advocacy. Please visit our Flickr album to view more photo from our important disability rights and advocacy work in Myanmar!
