As one of the longest-serving international NGOs in Myanmar, Pact has been helping people here to improve their lives since 1997. We use locally developed and owned solutions and work closely with citizens, local government and civil society.
With partners that have included USAID, UNDP, The Rockefeller Foundation, Chevron, Coca-Cola, Ooredoo, Shell, 3MDG, LIFT, and thousands of local organizations and community groups, Pact designs and implements projects that maximize local ownership and leverage existing systems and networks. Our work has covered a broad spectrum of interventions, including health, livelihoods, local governance, civil society strengthening and renewable energy.
We combine community education with grassroots governance through Village Development Committees (VDCs) and financial sustainability through Village Development Funds (VDFs). We strengthen local communities by promoting inclusive and participatory village decision-making, supporting transparent and accountable community development, and mentoring organizations to develop their institutional capacity.
Through the Advancing Community Empowerment in Southeastern Myanmar project, supported by USAID, Pact works with communities to bolster their ownership, capacity and action to meet the needs of the most vulnerable; broaden participation for more inclusive decision making; and strengthen mechanisms for more responsive and accountable local governance.
Through Smart Power Myanmar, Pact is helping to accelerate access to renewable energy in off-grid areas by bringing together key players in the public and private sectors, spurring economic growth and transforming lives in rural communities.

Pact envisions a Myanmar where vibrant and diverse communities exercise their voice and build lasting solutions for a better life. We’re successful when communities can say, “We did it ourselves.”
