About Us

Our History

In sanskrit, Manushya means 'Human Being'. It was founded in 2017 by Emilie Palamy Pradichit, as a women-led & innovative non-profit organization promoting community empowerment to advance the human rights of marginalized communities and fight for social justice! 


We believe in the 'infinite positive power of Humans' in building together inclusive, just, equal and peaceful societies in Asia, where everyone enjoys human rights,

leaving no one behind.


We connect and empower local communities across Asia to be at the centre of decisions and policies that affect them. Communities become Agents of Change fighting for their rights and providing solutions to improve
their lives and livelihoods.
