Traditionally women have subordinate roles in Myanmar, which often makes it hard for them to be active agents of change in their society. This situation is even harder for women that come from ethnic minorities, as their access to education and work opportunities have been extremely limited. Despite the current reforms of the new government, human right abuses are still being committed against ethnic minority groups.


The coaching assists women to become aware of their role in society and strengthen their transformation process, which will assist them into becoming self-confident leaders. The Women Leadership network Meetings aim to inspire upcoming women leaders to take action and seeks to create multi-disciplined women's networks in the ethnic areas of Myanmar and connect them on a national level. The emerging women leaders will in turn train women to develop into community leaders.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that women's education and supporting their journey towards leadership is the world's best investment that has many returns. It doesn't only lead to economic growth but also has positive impact in many places around the world leading to reduced rates of infant mortality, maternal mortality and child marriage. Education also improves the health of women and children, enhances social status and leads to gender equality. Educate One Empower Thousands, Because She is a Leader!
