Human Rights and Democracy Training


Burmese living in exile in India do not always have the reach to help Burmese inside the country or on the border areas. Many Burmese inside Burma lack knowledge of human rights, democracy, and politics, this includes in particular the Chin and Mizo living in the Kalay, Kabaw Valley, Sagaing Division area where there is a large military headquarters. MWO will offer training in democracy and human rights to people in this area, to help promote the transition to democracy in Burma as well as make the country itself and the population stronger. Another goal is to encourage more communication and cooperation between the different ethnic groups inside Burma, particularly among youth.

Mizo Welfare Organization will provide training to approximately 40 people, with a priority on youth, in Kalay Kabaw valley during 2 four-day sessions held in July 2012.

You can help by contributing to the costs of preparing and carrying out the training, including hall rental, stationery, and travel/transportation for both the trainers and participants.
