Burmese American Community Institute
Programs Overview

BACI currently operates in three areas:

1. Advocacy

At BACI, we believe that to successfully integrate into a new community while maintaining one’s own cultural identity, the Burmese refugee and the American communities both need to educate each other and respect each other’s cultural norms.

BACI advocates for the Burmese refugee community as well as their individual needs, and hopes to expand the local community’s knowledge and understanding of the Burmese population, further enhancing the refugees’ integration into the Indianapolis community.

In addition, BACI collaboratively host and facilitate neighborhood forums for voicing concerns in hopes of furthering cultural understanding between the Burmese refugee and the local Indianapolis community.

2. BACI Educational Institution

Under its educational institution, BACI has designed and implemented several programs:

BACI is recruiting volunteers and qualified interns to assist with the programs implementations.
