CEELI Institute Launches Fundraising Campaign to support our work with the Myanmar Lawyers Network
In October, the CEELI Institute launched a fundraising campaign to enable us to broaden our training efforts in Burma so that we can reach young lawyers from more remote regions of the country. While the need for legal training in Burma is great, access to education, especially in the regions, is limited. Educational standards are low. But the young lawyers are dedicated and hardworking, and desperate for access to the kind of training we are providing. Our program is tailored to meet their needs in areas such as advocacy and courtroom presentation skills and case management. The needs are great but the cost of working in Burma are low, and even small contributions go far:
- $80 would cover the participation costs for one training of a Burmese lawyer traveling from the regions
- $400 would cover one Burmese lawyer becoming a trainer able to carry on trainings in their regions
