Our student Ying Kawn Tai has achieved First Class Honors at Payap University in her first semester by achieving a 3.5+ GPA while volunteering teaching Shan construction workers. We can’t wait to update you with her continued progress.
“In university, I can decide who I should learn from and be exposed to different skills and ideas. This is very important for me and my community. Nowadays, I also use some of my new knowledge and skills when volunteering as a teacher at a construction site.”
On October 12th, We women held a Charity Walk in the Netherlands and Chiang Mai in order to raise enough funds to continue to support YingLong in her second year Masters of Education Administration at Assumption University.
“Decision making skills and the importance of communication skills will help me to create a better education environment as well. In addition, I have studied curriculum development and implementation. This course helped me to understand about curriculum definition and approaches. I discovered new methods of teaching which I will be able to take to Myanmar and use to improve the management in schools. Moreover, I have learnt the importance of analyzing and improving teaching. This has given me a better understanding on what can be done by teachers and has made my motivation stronger to improve our school system.”- Ying Long talking about her learning at Assumption University
The Charity Walk fundraiser was able to raise 3000Euro and 14,000THB; just enough to continue to pay for her tuition and expenses. Over 45 people came together to walk along the Old City in Chiang Mai (2 hours)- this included staff, volunteers, tutors, students from BEAM our partner organization, and new supporters. The Charity Walk proved there is a community who can come together to support the movement for women leadership and women’s higher education in Burma.
“I loved the Charity Walk in Chiang Mai! I was able to meet so many people who are involved and who are benefitting from We women foundation’s programs. I was able to hold the We women banner proud and walk in front with a volunteer from the Netherlands. I felt like I belonged and had a support system.”- Min, our office assistant and Pre- Uni student from Bago Region
“At the end, after we had spent hours together walking side by side for Ying Long and We women foundation. Everyone came together as a community with a sense of belongingness. Through donations, many people were able to participate actively and connect directly with students. I think we should engage online donors in a more active way; for example, we can live stream events from now on and bring them closer to the students and foundation.”- San, our Program Coordinator from Bago Region
