What the project does
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. Subjects include: environmental sustainability, gender equality, non-violent activism, human (and refugee) rights as well as English and computer studies.
Each year 35 young adults do the basic course and 26 applicants  are selected from the basic course to continue their studies in the Advanced Community Management Course.

REI has supported the work of KNSDC for some years and has seen the progress it has made as it has developed its integrated syllabus and seen alumni from the courses go on to become mobile trainers and change-makers, both in the camps and within Karenni state.

The goal of the Social Development Center Training project is to distribute knowledge and skills in Human Rights, Environment and Law, on the Thai-Burma Border.

The Social Development Center was developed and is staffed by four Karenni graduates from the EarthRights International School with funds from the alumni program funded by Refugee Empowerment International to encourage victims of human rights’ abuses to build a new society that values human dignity and the environment.
