The project aims to improve the stability and empowerment of marginalised Myanmar Muslims as well as disadvantaged Thais in host communities through interventions to improve their living, working, and better access to health, education, legal aid, protection, and livelihoods. Its goal is also to increase the awareness of interventions and strengthen the standardization of approaches by the international and local humanitarian community, and local and religious leaders, in their efforts to assist the communities and the wellbeing of its members.
The project should decrease the vulnerability of marginalized Myanmar Muslims in host communities through relationship building, and advocacy/awareness-raising with all relevant stakeholders (international humanitarian community, local and religious leaders, neighboring Thai communities, NGOs, CBOs and RTG).
