Myanmar Committee - Who are we?
The Myanmar Committee is a working group under the YMCA and the YWCA of Denmark's international committee "Global Communities". YMCA and YWCA in Denmark are part of the two world organizations YMCA and YWCA, and are thus part of the world's largest youth organization.

The current Myanmar project stems from the YMCA and the YWCA's previous international project "Minglabar Myanmar". Since the end of the project at the time, we in the Myanmar Committee have worked on how the collaboration between YMCA and YWCA in Denmark and YMCA Myanmar can be developed, and how we in collaboration create a relevant, attractive and sustainable project.

In the project, we work to strengthen young people's involvement in civil society. The project is based in Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar. Here, young volunteers meet for workshops, social activities, trainings and the like. In addition, the ambition is to work for exchange between Myanmar and Denmark, so that we can learn from each other to an even greater degree. The UN's global goal for sustainable development sets the framework for the project's activities and exchange. The goal of creating partnerships for action forms an umbrella for the partnership, under which the project deals with precisely the themes that concern the young people - in Myanmar as well as in Denmark. Therefore, topics such as gender equality, less inequality and quality education are some of the topics that are on the agenda in the future project.

We are looking for economic shark !
