Equality Myanmar (EQMM)

Equality Myanmar (formerly HREIB) is a non-governmental organization which facilitates a broad range of human rights education and advocacy programs. EQMM was founded in 2000 with the goal of empowering the people of Myanmar through human rights education to engage in social transformation and promote a culture of human rights. The organization envisions a peaceful, tolerant and democratic society built on respect for dignity and human rights for all. Over the last fifteen years, EQMM has trained women, university students, monks and pastors, activists, school teachers, and community leaders, building a strong network of human rights trainers and advocates across the country as well as along its border regions. EQMM has played a central role in coordinating a wide range of advocacy campaigns over the years to raise awareness about the human rights situation in Myanmar at local, national, regional, and international levels. Additionally, the organization produces a range of human rights educational materials, audio/visual tools, and other multimedia resources in order to address the lack of human rights information available in Burmese and ethnic languages.
