Karenni Social Development Centre (KSDC) runs nine-month courses that trains young people to be aware of their rights and to understand the rule of law, democracy, care for the environment and general leadership skills for working with their communities.
This project will enable 63 refugees, aged 16 -21, to attend the Karenni Further Studies Program (KnFSP) for a year, in Karenni Camp 2 on the Thai/Burma border.
This project will provide a ten month training course for 30 young Karenni refugees residing in Karenni Refugee Camp 1 in Mae Hong Son province, Thailand.
Education in the Karenni Camps refugee camps in Thailand is limited and basic. Currently educational assistance to Karenni refugees from early childhood development to high school education is primarily supported by international non-governmental organizations and individuals and there are very few educational opportunities beyond 10th grade.
