Details

The Burmese refugee and asylum seeker community in Delhi amounts to approx. 10,000. Among them, the majority are the Chin people. There are many human rights violation cases undocumented as the refugees often do not know their rights. There is also weak networking among refugees. The training will give community members the skills to  improve documentation of human rights violations. If people report more cases, this can be used in advocacy at both local and international level. The training will also strenghten networking among refugees.

Your share will contribute to the costs of conducting the training, including hall rental, transportation, stationery, and honoraria for the trainers.
