Details

Chin Students’ Union planned to give skills training to teachers in Burmese refugee community schools, but learned that other organizations were already organizing such training. They have decided, therefore, to organize a training workshop called “Strengthening Students’ Success” for newly admitted university students from the refugee community. Many students are able to get admission to universities in Delhi, but have trouble completing their studies. In a full-day session to be held in September, participants will learn about the importance of education, the differences between the Burmese and Indian education systems, and how to improve their study methods.

CSU will also organize a one-day seminar in October on “The Current Political Situation in Burma” for the Burmese refugee community at large in New Delhi.

You can help by contributing to the costs of providing the one-day training for new university students, as well as the one-day seminar for the refugee community.

Additional Information

Name of Organization Chin Students' Union
About the Organisation

The Chin Student’s Union was formed in 1946, by a few Chin students at Rangoon University to participate in the movement to achieve independence from the British Empire. After the student uprising in Burma of August 8, 1988, leaders were exiled to India and the organization was reformed in 1995. The organization has a president, secretary, finance manager, and treasurer, as well as an advisory board to advise on activities and provide a path for reaching the organization’s aims and objectives. The Chin Student Union’s aims and objectives include helping with the educational and social problems of Chin people; preserving and promotion Chin literature, culture, and tradition; and advocating on behalf of the people for equality and self-determination in the Union of Burma together with other ethnic organizations.

The CSU helps Burmese students and youth to get admission to Indian schools, colleges, and universities. They have organized workshops, trainings, and other activities for Burmese refugees in Delhi. They have collaborated with Tibetan Students’ and India Students’ Unions to help Burmese people access education in India. They serve Burmese refugees all over India and do networking with student groups inside as well as outside Burma.
