Yangon Heritage Trust

Global Heritage Fund fiscally sponsors the Yangon Heritage Trust, a conservancy dedicated toward the conservation of historic buildings and landscapes in Yangon, Myanmar. Working in a manner that benefits the local community and economy, YHT shares a vision with GHF that will lead to a productive partnership.

Global Heritage Fund began its fiscal sponsorship of the Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT) in 2014. Dedicated towards supporting cultural conservancy in the city of Yangon, Myanmar, YHT is an “independent center of excellence working to promote and integrate Yangon’s unique urban heritage into a 21st century vision of Yangon as one of Asia’s most liveable cities.”

With such a similar vision to Global Heritage Fund, we are confident that our partnership with YHT will be a mutually beneficial and prosperous one.
