THE STORY:

First some clarification of words for better understanding... Refugee: someone who has been forced to flee their country because it is no longer safe for them to live there. Karen (Kuh-ren): a minority ethnic people group from the country of Burma who have been persecuted, killed, oppressed, run out of their villages and worse by the ruling military party in Burma. They lived in refugee camps for many years in Thailand and beginning in 2006 were invited to resettle in the United States. They have been people basically without a home country and are now making this one theirs.
For the last three or four years several Karen young people have been attending the Summer Conference of the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America. At these conferences they have met mentors and have learned that there are solutions to conflict and terror other than war and violence. They have met leaders who have faced unspeakable violence and learned to live a life of forgivness and peace. These experiences have had a profound impact on the lives of these young people. As they graduate from high school and move toward college and become American citizens, their future goals include working for better life situations for their people and working for solutions to war and violence. The confence this year is at Brock University in St. Catherine, Ontario, Canada. These motivated young people want and hope to attend this conference, but need the funding to do so. Please help!
