Malnutrition, lack of safe places to play and busy parents struggling to provide for their families - these are just some of the difficulties faced by Burmese children in exile. Burmese Women Delhi plans to hold a 2-day training for Burmese refugee parents on the issues of Child Welfare and Development. The training will address the problems of malnutrition, improving parental involvement, and provide information on child development, child protection and the rights of the child. BWD will host a professional trainer and a couple of community leaders and workers who know the refugee situation and can place the training in the practical context. The trainings will be based on discussions so that the parents are encouraged to reflect on their own situations.
