“Through Our Eyes” in Thailand

In October 2009, a “Through Our Eyes” workshop was completed at the Nu Po refugee camp in northwestern Thailand. The first videotape produced by the training participants—Karen and Burmese refugees from the conflict in Myanmar—focused on harmony in the home based on equality between husbands and wives. Subsequent video themes have included early marriage, domestic violence, and trafficking/abuse of children. Project activities are ongoing in Nu Po, and have been extended to several other refugee camps as well.
