Shan Communities Equal Rights Opportunity and Access (SCEROAP)

This project will work to ensure men and women enjoy equal opportunities and equal access to services in Northern Shan State. At its conclusion, community health workers, health insurance funds and self-help groups will be functioning in 16 villages, and members will have completed business training and started individual or group businesses. Village development committees will complete training on leadership skills, project cycle management, community organizing, human rights, gender, and land law, and will develop village action plans. The community, in particular youth, will improve awareness on safe migration, acquiring legal documents and trafficking.
