URBAN MOVEMENT IN MAE-SOT (PROGRAM STATEMENT)URBAN MOVEMENT IN MAE-SOT (PROGRAM STATEMENT)
The First Jam Urban Movement's Hip Hop camp for IDP teenagers is a powerful statement of solidarity and hope for young people affected by the recent crisis in Myanmar. The program represents an opportunity to provide a platform for underprivileged youth who have been displaced and marginalized by recent events. By offering practical skills and creative expression through the four elements of Hip Hop, the program aims to inspire participants, foster self-esteem, and build a sense of community and belonging.
The camp will take place in Mae Sot, Thailand, and is designed to provide a week-long program for 40-60 IDP teenagers who have fled from Myanmar. Participants may be refugees, under documented people, or those who have been exiled from Myanmar and are now surviving on the border of Thailand. The program will teach participants about the four elements of Hip Hop, including Rap, DJ, Graffiti, and Breakin. In addition to the practical skills, participants will also learn about the history, culture, and technique of Hip Hop, providing a strong foundation for their future careers.
The First Jam Urban Movement is committed to providing a supportive and inclusive environment for the participants. The program is tailored to the needs of those living in difficult circumstances, providing lunch meals and refreshments throughout the week. The camp is designed to be a safe and supportive space for participants to express themselves and develop their skills.
This program represents a critical stepping stone for participants who may not have had access to educational or vocational opportunities. By providing an inclusive and supportive environment, the program aims to inspire participants to pursue their passions and dreams. The First Jam Urban Movement's mission is to support and achieve, even in the face of challenging circumstances. This initiative is a powerful statement of that commitment, providing a beacon of hope and inspiration for young people affected by the recent crisis in Myanmar.
