Needs Statement

Myanmar was recently been downgraded by the US State Department with respect to its efforts to combat human trafficking. We work in the capital city of Yangon as well as the states of Chin, Shan and Kachin as these areas have significant human trafficking activity. Many Burmese children are trafficked domestically for labor as well as into neighbouring countries for child marriage, sexual enslavement, etc. Our coordinators work to form clubs and hold awareness campaigns to educate families about the risks of letting their children go away from home. They have also intercepted several trafficking rings and been able to restore children back home with their families.

Description

The girls’ club curriculum is used by community-based volunteers who implement and run prevention clubs. Clubs aim to reduce the prevalence of human trafficking and other forms of exploitation, including abuse and child marriage. After having started several clubs around Myanmar, we have seen demand for the curriculum to be used in parts of Chin and Kachin states. This project will translate the girls’ empowerment curriculum into Chin and Kachin languages so that coordinators in these states can use the curriculum.
