The Arakan Human Rights and Development Organisation (AHRDO) is a non-profit, independent organisation formed on November 9, 2011, by veteran members of the All Arakan Students and Youth Congress (AASYC) and other Arakanese individuals on the Thai-Myanmar (Burma) border with the objective of contributing to the holistic and sustainable development of Arakan (Rakhine) State.
AHRDO researches and documents human rights violations and environmental and cultural abuses throughout Arakan State as well as the situation of the Arakanese people with regards to education, healthcare, safety, ability to make a livelihood, and the social, economic, and political situation of the Arakanese population.
AHRDO then uses this research and documentation to inform both the people and the Government of Myanmar as well as the international community about these issues, with the core aim of developing a just society that is guided by the principles of human rights and equality, and promoting the development of the entire Arakan State.
AHRDO is open for membership to all Arakanese people, regardless of their sex, colour, religion, or political affiliation, and works for the common good of the entire Arakanese population.
AHRDO envisages an Arakan State where the people of Arakan live with the human rights, equality, and justice that is necessary for progress and development throughout the entire region.
Our mission is to develop an equitable Arakan society where human rights and equality are recognised and respected by all, and to improve the political, economic and social conditions affecting the Arakanese population; and to protect and preserve Arakanese cultural heritage, as well as the region’s resources and natural environment, while promoting appropriate and sustainable development.
