Civic Action for Free and Fair Elections (CAFFE) Project


Civic Action for Free and Fair Election Project (CAFFE Project) was conducted by Mon State-based civil society organizations (CSOs) including Jee-pyah Civil Society Development Organization (JCSDO), Mon Youth Progression Organization (MYPO), Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM), Konhongsar, and Rehmonnya Institute of Civic Engagement (RICE).

The CAFFE Project teams decided to work together and believed that the public should actively participate in free and fair elections in the 2020 elections that met international standards for elections in other democratic countries.

CAFFE Project targeted fourteen townships in total, including ten townships in Mon State (Kyaikto, Belin, Thaton, Paung, Mawlamyine, Chaungzon, Kyaikmayaw, Mudon, Thanbyuzayat, and Ye); three townships in Karen State (Hpa-an, Kawkareik, and Kyarinseikyi); and Yebyu Township in Tanintharyi Division.
