Project Description

Unfolding Peace

Rohingya, known as the world’s most persecuted minority group were not recognized as one of the country’s 135 ethnic groups in Myanmar. After many years of violence and disputes, thousands of Rohingya have fled to neighboring countries such as India, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal and so on after the conflict of 2012. Around 650 Rohingya people are recently living in Nepal but the government of Nepal has not till this date recognized them as urban refugees.
The number of Rohingya living in Nepal range from 367 people living in Kapan area of Kathmandu and others scattered all over Nepal. The refugees are deprived of their human rights, right to education, right to vote, right to freedom and many other activities which have continuously exploited their living condition. Thus, with the project ‘Unfolding Peace’ we want to uplift the present situation of children in their community. Children who should have learned, played, enjoyed their childhood rather suffered a lot of exploitation, violence and disputes in their early age. Hence, ‘We’ for Change with the help of ‘Peace First’ wants to gave them a joyful part of their childhood through various recreational activities like yoga, drawing competition, games, art and crafts etc in a hope to provide them with mental and spiritual fitness along with physical health. The project helps them overcome their inner disputes, post traumatic disorder through combined efforts which has given them a better hope to their rising future.
