East Yangon District is located in Yangon City, the capital city in Myanmar. East Yangon District has many new townships. The study is based on these new townships because they have many open spaces and a little far from the centre of the city. Definition for slum has been defined by many scholars. In this research, the researcher uses the definition of UN-Habitat, 2003. Slums are people living under substandard conditions and squalor. Many homeless people settle here.
