Karenni Social Development Center was established in 2002 by graduates of the Earthrights School Burma. The vision of the Social Development Center is to promote the lives of people of the Karenni ethnic group who have suffered human rights abuses, promote non-violent efforts to build a new society, develop the rule of law, and protect the environment. The SDC's training program aims to spread knowledge and skills regarding human rights, environment and law on the Thai-Burma border.
KSDC teaches classes to post-10 (mostly 18-25 year old) Karenni students in English, human rights, nonviolent social change, law, environment, gender issues, democracy, computers and other subjects that will help them to become leaders in their communities.
