Young people from the refugee communities are active in many grassroots organizations. However, ofter they lack leadership skills or a good understanding and practical experience with leading in a democratic way. Delhi Mara Community will organize a workshop for youth members from a variety of community-based organizations. The training will focus on Democratic Leadership and explore how youth can engage constructively within and on behalf of the refugee communities in India.

About 30 Burmese youth from  New Delhi will participate in the workshop which will include 3 experienced speakers with leadership background.
