Welcome to GWM

GraceWorks Myanmar (GWM) is a non-denominational community development organisation. We partner with local organisations and individuals who are working in communities, helping them achieve improvement and sustainability in their quality of life.

Through education, health, community wellbeing, and livelihood initiatives, we invest in practical programs and projects. We emphasise building capacity and long-term relationships with local partners to play our role in empowering people in Myanmar to achieve sustainable development.

Our operations build on more than a decade of working with local communities. This is enabled by grants and philanthropic gifts from organisations based on Australia, the UK and Myanmar, corporate partnerships, and the generous financial and volunteer contributions of private supporters in Australia.
