What we do

The Myanmar Program of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung seeks to contribute towards a democratic transition and an inclusive and sustainable development for the benefit of all people in Myanmar. The Myanmar program dates back to the early 2000s when the foundation decided to support civil society inside Myanmar by awarding scholarships to promising young students from all parts of Myanmar and advocating a pro-engagement approach. Moreover, with its artists exchange program the foundation enabled exchange between local artists and creative people from Myanmar as well as those from Southeast Asia and beyond.
