Because She is a Leader

Because She is a Leader

 Imagine... being born in a country that is oppressed by a military dictatorship.

 Imagine… going to sleep hungry and living in constantfear, because you never know what will happen next.

 Imagine… being separated from your parents, because they have to work on a farm far from home to be able to provide for you.

 Imagine… going to school in a system that was designed to prepare you for alife of oppression, where speaking freely about your ideas is an illusion.

 Imagine… the the despair that comes with fleeing from dangersso violentthat your life is no longer secure.

 And then imagine… having hope sand dreamsfor a better tomorrow...

Nang Mo doesn’t need to imagine, because for her this is the reality of her life. She was separated from her parents at the age of three. She had to flee, because her family was facing serious dangers. Nang Mo ended up in an IDP camp along the Thai-Burma border, but she maintained the hope and the dream of a stable country for her people.

Being the strong and ambitious woman that she is, and with the help and dedication of her family, Nang Mo finished a Bachelor’s degree in Myanmar. She managed to find a job in education in the IDP camps but was confronted with a total lack of infrastructure and resources mean that the education system in the camp was completely underdeveloped. To help improve this situation she decided she wanted to learn more about how to organise and run education systems and so, with the support of We women, she fought hard to get a Masters degree in Education Administration.

Nang Mo returned to the IDP camps along the Thai-Burma border armed with her Masters Degree in Education Administration. One of her great accomplishments is that she introduced and organised high school education in all five of the IDP camps, making education available to thousands of teenagers now and in the future. She also trains teachers in different, effective teaching methods, aiming to contribute to a non-biased education system in Myanmar.  Here you can see how through supporting one woman to achieve a higher level of education, the education level of thousands of women is raised.

You are We women

We have said it before and we will say it again; We women is nowhere without you. If it wasn’t for the supporters that have donated to our cause over the past years, we could not have helped Nang Mothrough university. We women Myanmar would still be nothing more than a dream. She would not be building her own organisation and fighting to provide other women with the same opportunities that have brought her so much.

We hope we have made you understand how even small donations can have a great impact. Donate today, become a supporter and we will keep you informed about the social impact of your contribution to social change.
