Namati’s Burma program nominated in the Classy Awards

Namati’s work in Burma providing legal assistance and advice to farmers facing a new land registration law has been recognized in the annual CLASSY Awards. The Burma program’s work was named as a Top 5 nominee in the category ‘Livelihood Development and Quality of Life’. Other Top 5 nominees in that category included a WaterAid project in Nigeria and an Ubuntu Education Fund program in South Africa. Namati’s Burma program, which only began work in 2013, has already served around 2,000 clients and has a presence in 150 village tracts in five states. Namati’s program there is undertaken in partnership with the Civil and Political Rights Campaign Group (CPRCG). The CLASSY Awards are the largest social impact awards in the United States.
