Details

The Burmese refugee and asylum seeker community in Delhi, which numbers over 10,000 people, features 29 Chin churches and fellowships, and 28 pastors who are well respected and influential. Most pastors are not actively involved in human rights issues despite the many problems faced by the Chin community in India. As the pastors play a big role in Chin society, they could bring about many changes if they helped deal with the day-to-day difficulties encountered by their congregations.

In July 2012, CHRO Delhi would like to provide three-day training in human rights for pastors, to enable them to engage not only in religious but also human rights activities on behalf of their church/fellowship members. The training will cover such topics as the meaning of human rights, Christianity and human rights, and women’s rights.

You can help by contributing to the costs for running the training, including hall rental, transportation, stationery and supplies, and honoraria for the trainers.
