Kaladan Press Network - KPN - was founded by some Rohingyas who left Burma in 1948 in search of better opportunities for their community. In 2001, ethnic media were beginning to emerge, but there was no voice for Rohingyas - Muslims from Arakan, or Rakhine state who face widespread discrimination in identity and status, employment, education, travel and etc..... Gary Rozema of BRC came up with the idea, and KPN had setup on 21st February 2001. Since 2001, KPN is running with hardship: survived on donations from well-wisher donners and exiled Rohingya community leaders, distributing news by e-mail and online.
