Aung Kyaw Moe

Aung Kyaw Moe is a humanitarian and founder of non-governmental organization, the Centre for Social Integrity, one of the 2019 Global Pluralism Award winners. His NGO is building bridges among different ethnic groups in Myanmar – working directly with conflict-affected youth – amidst widespread social unrest and despite ethnic and religious persecution in the country.

He was interviewed by Daniel Cervan-Gil, Manager of Programs at the Global Centre for Pluralism on May 11th, 2020.

We asked Aung Kyaw Moe to reflect on the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable communities in Myanmar, a global sense of humanity, and where he sees opportunities for greater solidarity in the post-pandemic world.
