Agency: Social Development Centre
The Social Development Centre was set up by a graduate from the Earthrights International School with funds from the alumni programme funded by REI. The purpose of the Centre is to encourage victims of human rights abuses to build a new society that values human dignity and the environment. SDC runs a 10-month training course in Karenni camp 1 near Mae Hong Son for 20 people from different ethnic groups. The course covers non-violent social change, law and environment. SDC also has mobile teams to spread this knowledge beyond the local community. This project addresses the needs of younger people who face limited opportunities.
