Capacity Building and Mentoring program

In 2010, after a series of discussions and assessments with local leaders in various communities, KACF leadership identified a pressing need to strengthen community leadership and understanding around the educational system and the rights of parents and children. Based on the needs assessment, KACF provided training and technical assistance to increase the capacity of Karen communities to support refugee families in resettlement by training community members on key issue to strengthen the leadership capacity to train community helpers through capacity building and mentoring program.
