Burmese Refugees in Malaysia Fight Gender-Based Violence Through Community-Based Programming

The Refugee Women’s Protection Corps (RWPC) was formed by ICMC in 2010 and has since provided a community-based approach to prevent and respond to GBV amongst Burmese refugees in Malaysia. ICMC staff mentors, supervises and coordinates a group of around twenty RWPC volunteers from the Burmese refugee community to better address harmful gender inequalities.
