Karen Development

Karen Development Network (also known as Knowledge and Dedication for Nation Building) is a church-based Karen organization with a vision of strengthening civil society in Myanmar and especially the civic engagement of ethnic communities and the younger generation. Through its Community Management (CM) training program, KDN has created a national network of people who can manage community organizations and initiate community action. The organization used this established network as a means to create space for inclusive participation in the peace process for Karen communities in Myanmar through the establishment of peace support groups and inter-ethnic dialogue opportunities.
