BENEFITING: New Venture Fund

EVENT: #RiseForRohingya

Grace Fernandes

THE STORY:

The Rohingya, a Muslim minority ethnic group in Burma, are considered the most at-risk of genocide in the world. Since October 9th, violence against the Rohingya has escalated to alarming levels. With little to no access to healthcare, education, or livelihoods—and over 140,000 living in what some have labelled “modern-day concentration camps”—these families continue to be systematically oppressed by Buddhist extremists.

We must #RiseforRohingya and build up the next generation of leaders. The Young Leaders Center in Burma is training young adults in peacebuilding, mentoring them through community-based projects, and leading the way to a more peaceful tomorrow.

100% of funds donated to this page will be granted to the Young Leaders Center* in Burma 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 particularly on the effects of hate speech

* Assist Peacemakers in brainstorming, developing, and implementing projects to build peace and tolerance in their communities
