Burmese Refugee Youth Prevent Addiction & Violence

And the beat goes on...



DARE Network is in the midst of its biggest Addiction Worker training since 2008.  We are gathering our resources, upgrading our materials and creating incredible teams of workers, who will not only continue our work in the refugee camps but contribute to the expansion of our work into Burma and particular Karen State, when the conditions are right.

4 of our "Master" trainers are currently in Mae La Camp, half way through a 6 month training of new workers from Nu Poe, Umpiem Mai, Mae La, Mae Ra Moo, Mae La Oon and our Migrant Worker areas.  The 30 new trainees are learning the theory and then will have the experiential learning through all of our programs, including treatment, working with our Youth Teams and community education.  They will learn the skill from our trainers in their own languages with the training materials developed over our 14 years of working on the Thai/Burma Border.  

When the training is finished, the new Addiction Workers will return to their respective areas to continue to contribute to the well-being of their communities.

Our core staff are also busy working on a final version of our training manual so that we can share our work inside Burma and even in third countries, where Burmese refugees have resettled all over the world.

All of this is a big undertaking for us.  We want you to know we appreciate your continued support for our Youth Program and please know it makes a difference every day.
