Welcome to the Karenni Social Development Center

Using strategies of non-violent change, we hope to give Karenni people freedom..We are a small community based organisation located on the Thai-Burma border. Our goal is to protect the environment in our state and promote the human rights of the long suffering Karenni people. Furthermore we aim to build a new society based upon the rule of the law. On this website, we provide information about our organisation, our activities, our monthly publications and opportunities to support our work.

Thank you for showing an interest in our community!

The Karenni Social Development Center (SDC) provides access to a successful training program with classes in Human Rights, Democracy, law, environment, computer, and English. SDC trains young refugees to become advocates in non-violent social change.

SDC is supported by grants from American Jewish World Service, Refugees International Japan, Open Society Institute and is recognized by Burma Volunteer Programs. We are a partner organisation of EarthRights International and our advanced course is conducted jointly with them.  The Curriculum Project and Mote Oo Education provide in-kind donations of textbooks.
