The Rohingya people of Burma are considered to the most at-risk of genocide of any group in the world, and since October 9, violence against them has escalated to frightening levels. Over 140,000 members of the Muslim minority group currently live in modern-day concentration camps—the work of Buddhist extremists who have systematically oppressed them for years.
We must #RiseForRohingya and build up the next generation of peaceful leaders. The Young Leaders Center* in Burma is training young adults in peacebuilding and mentoring them as they create their own projects to lead the way to a more peaceful tomorrow. 100% of funds donated to this page will be granted to:
~Support four young leaders to be a part the Peacemaker Training and Mentorship Program
~Train these Peacemakers to identify and respond to various threats to peace in their communities, focusing on the effects of hate speech
~Assist Peacemakers in brainstorming, developing, and implementing projects to build peace and tolerance in their communities
*Due to security reasons, the names of grantees are altered slightly. All donors will receive updates and reports on the projects funded by this fund and the outcomes in Burma.
