Expand view

This document is produced by Minority Rights Group International. It is primarily about the effect of war on children from the indigenous communities in Bangladesh in the Chittagong Hill tracts. Although it reports on children of all ages up to 18, the issues it outlines impact children in the 0-8 age group just as much. These are: physical injury and death; witnessing of atrocities; separation from parents and community; lost access to health care, education and housing; eviction and forced population transfer; life as refugees and displaced persons; destruction of villages, crops and wells and neglect during humanitarian relief and reconstruction programmes. The article also gives an account of international law and the conventions and declarations which aim to protect indigenous communities in conflict situations

CBM Australia self-help group enquiry

CBM AUSTRALIA

Expand view

This guidance considers how self help groups are supported and the factors that are needed to ensure that they are functional, inclusive and sustainable.

This was a small-scale enquiry that involved looking at case studies from six partners that employ self-help group development for a range of purposes and in a range of geographical locations. A questionnaire was used by project officers with each of the six selected projects, and the resulting information was analysed by a group from CBMA’s International Programs department, with key areas of learning identified from this discussion. Findings are not comprehensive or conclusive and there is not one model for success. Instead the aim is to draw some useful tips from partners’ experiences.
