28 September 2013: More than 50 Asho Chins attended basic human rights trainings organized by the Asho Development Fund in cooperation with the MustardSeed Myanmar in the former capital of Rangoon on 23-27 September.
The trainings focused on a range of topics including citizen rights, minority rights, basic democracy, peacebuilding and leadership with the participants from 13 townships of Rakhine State, Magwe, Irrawaddy and Pegu Regions.
