Burma Border Study Tour Jan/Feb 2012
UnionAid is planning a study tour to Mae Sot on the Thai-Burma border early next year.
As well as visiting our new Occupational Skills Training Centre the study tour will be a unique opportunity to talk to Burmese people on the border about their hopes and aspirations for a democratic Burma, to learn about international aid and development and the work of the FTUB and other groups fighting for a democratic Burma.
We will visit the schools run by the FTUB, the Prisoners Aid Programme and other NGOs working on the border. There will be plenty of time to talk to men and women unionists about their work, and the history of the struggle for independence and freedom.
The study tour is designed for people with a genuine interest in international aid and development, and the Burmese situation. We are looking for people who are active in their workplaces, who can bring enthusiasm to the study tour, and use the experience as an opportunity to learn, share and educate when they return home. Solidarity members will get priority.
Expressions of interest welcome. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
