Brief Background History

The Chin people from Burma (Myanmar) are scattering in many countries today as refugees and encountering unbearable problems in our daily lives while the Chin State (Chinland) itself is still in troubled water for decade long civil war in the country. Several discussions and seminars have been made to improve the socio-economic problems of the Chin people; however, such motivated discussion lasted for a few weeks for lack of implementing organization. In order to organize and connect those beneficial discussion and ideas into real life the Chin Foundation (CF) was formed in May 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Chin community in Indianapolis is rapidly growing with the secondary migrants and new born babies. Indianapolis becomes the biggest community for the Chin people outside of Myanmar. The community mainly lives in Perry Township school district that Chin becomes the second largest minority in school district within a few years. Entering into a new and free society demands changes in social, culture, education, and economic norms. Successful adjustment in these areas enables individuals and families to become independent and fully functioning members of the new society.

Situation in Chin State, Myanmar, was a nightmare. Chin Christians faced more and more problems (majority of north side Chin are Christians). As the consequences, thousands of them have to leave their own homes and love ones. An estimated 50 thousands Chin live in United State alone. There are Chin communities and congregations in more than 15 countries such as USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan. There are about 100 thousand Chin still residing in Mizoram State of India and Bangladesh. This is the diaspora of the Chin in modern history. The Chins face many burdens as we begin life in new countries, but recognize at the same time that our loved ones need desperate help in Chin State, Myanmar. We need resources to survive and grow. Therefore, The Chin Foundation strives to strengthen the life of the Chins to meet the challenges that we encounter, advance the quality of life, and bring peace to our neighbors.

Vision:

Bridging the gaps to advance the quality of life for Chin and its neighbors and promoting racial harmony in a complex society.

Mission:

The Chin Foundation serves as a resource center; connecting people, services, education and technology. We are dedicated to engaging in economic, social and cultural development. We support agents that will assist in promoting peace and justice.

The Chin Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization. Your generous donations are tax-deductible.
