About Cherry Soe

Cherry Soe is an experienced researcher and longtime advocate for increasing women’s presence in politics. Along with being on the management team of JCSDO and the Director of the WEP, she is on the steering committee of the Alliance for Gender Inclusion in the Peace Process, and a steering committee in the Mon Women Network.


JCSDO has its roots in the Mon CSO community. Established as the Jeepyah Education Services (JES) in 2010 by members of the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM), it has since diversified its activities to include human rights documentation, child rights, and civic education of women. The name of the organization was changed from JES to JCSDO to better reflect these diverse activities, and the organization was officially registered under JCSDO in 2017.
