InsightOut! Booklet

Photo Story

Ethnic children in Burma affected by armed conflict have been separated from their family, displaced from home and uprooted from school.
From 2013-2015, InSIGHT OUT! organized workshops with ethnic Kachin youth displaced by war in northern Kachin and Shan states.
We held three workshops in Mina, Mai Ja Yang and Shwe Zet camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) -refugees in their own land.
The participants included youth who lost a family member to conflict or when parents migrated from the camp to China for economic survival.
The photos and stories by Kachin IDP children was exhibited at the Pansodan Scene Gallery in Yangon in January 2016.
Selected stories by participants were translated from Kachin into Burmese and English and published in a booklet.
The booklet was distributed for free Burmese who are not familiar with the conditions in ethnic areas could understand the situation facing
displaced youth, share their uncertainty of the present and hopes to return home in the future.
