This project will provide fifty (50) young adults living on the Thai-Burma border with training and education in law, nonviolent social change, and environmental issues. This ten-month course is a core aspect of building a vibrant and sustainable refugee community among those who have fled their homes in search of safety from the perpetual ethnic violence that overtook parts of Burma, also known as Myanmar, for over six decades. This training will brighten the future for these young adults, who will have increased opportunities for work and can seek to spread their knowledge further among their community after the course.
