COERR Mae Hong Son Joined “Youth Wisdom Walk” On November 20, 2015 in Ban Mai Nai Soi Camp. Participants were 166 youth (F-92, M-74). The objective of this activity is to have refugee children gain knowledge and life skills, team working, leadership, problem solving, map reading, etc. as important information for their health and well-being.

The “Youth Wisdom Walk” Team was guided by a map, to walk through Section 1 and 14 of Ban Mai Nai Soi camp. They made each stop at various “Knowledge stations” where the different organizations organized games, activities to provide the knowledge in particular fields of work of each NGO/CBOs related to child protection issue.

The participants were able to gain knowledge about the diverse service providers in the camp community and to disseminate the knowledge to their parents and other children in their sections, so others would be aware of services available, and about where and how to refer distinct cases.

At the same time, they acquire skills in map reading, imagination of space and orientation.
