Khaing Myo Htun (Myanmar)
In this posting of our Faces of Change series, we hear from Khaing Myo Htun, one of EarthRights School Myanmar’ 2006 alumni. Khaing Myo Htun worked with Arakan Oil Watch before co-founding Natural Resource for the People in 2008 (NRFP). With NRFP, he facilitates workshops for farmers, women, and ethnic leaders on land law, power sharing, government and democracy, to empower communities to advocate for their rights.
He believes that: “Fear, rights, and the truth is very interconnected. But to overcome the fear, we must know firstly our rights. One day when we know the truth and rights, we will no more have fear.”
