 BACKGROUND OF ORGANIZATION

Most people in Myanmar believe that disability is an individual health condition that can only be addressed by doctors and family members. The charity based model being to often the only alternative to Persons with Disability (PWDs). Living conditions and opportunities for PWDs were also weak and uneven long decades under the military government.  There were a few Disabled People Organizations across the country. Nevertheless, they mainly target one specific type of disability each and their movements were also more focused on charity model.

Being aware of this situation, three Myanmar nationals with disabilities (Nay Lin Soe, Aung Ko Myint, May Khant Chit Khin),  in together with Yu Ya Thu, Naw Beauty Bright and Nwaye Zar Chi Soe facilitated the establishment of Myanmar Independent Living Initiative (MILI), after completing their one-year DUSKIN Leadership Training in Japan (a program for persons with disabilities in Asia and the pacific Region).
