Open Myanmar Initiative (OMI) is one of the first organizations in Myanmar to use technology to empower citizens with critical information that will increase civic engagement and accountability. OMI generates data analyses tailored for mobile access, which journalists can use for objective reporting, and creates mobile applications for citizens to monitor and participate with elections.

The organization’s vision is to empower Myanmar citizens with information in order to actively participate in the country’s transition to a peaceful and prosperous democracy. As access to Internet and mobile technology increases, OMI’s approach will awaken citizens across the nation to realize the critical role they will play in their nation’s future.
