FRIENDS OF THE CHAKMAS
(FOTC) has been striving to carry the message of change to the grassroots levels and act as an agent of change.
Among many other initiatives,
our thrust areas have been to help the Chakmas get access to their basic rights to education, health and shelter and facilitate
capacity building and leadership training programmes.
We are working towards starting some small scale projects on education and community health.
We are also at the planning stage of
a youth leadership training programme for the Chakma youths. Trainers and resource persons from other youth groups (for instance,
the Students for Free Tibet) will facilitate the same.
