As a young professional currently working on social protection and community development issues in Myanmar, I am interested in the Global Legal Empowerment Network to learn more about access to justice programs in communities around the world. I have expertise in supporting the design and implementation of policy and community projects focused on health, social protection, livelihoods, and self help groups. I am particularly interested in how we can improve access to justice for elderly victims of social exclusion and violence, as well as young girls and women.
