We are raising money to give higher education scholarships for the brave young women from marginalised ethnic communities in Myanmar, so they can influence change, drive social reform, and empower thousands more like them!

Myanmar is a former British colony located in Southeast Asia. In addition to the Burman majority, there are 134 ethnic minority groups. These groups have been oppressed as part of the political agenda of controlling resource-rich areas where they reside. Women traditionally have a subordinate role in Myanmar and it is hard for them to make their voices heard. Coming from ethnic community will make it even harder for the women to access higher education and become role models in the society.


Since 2009, We women foundation has been providing scholarships to access higher education in universities across Southeast Asia, including pre- and in- university coaching and leadership skills training. The university degree will allow our alumni to work in the leadership positions where they can contribute to the development, promote equality and women's right, and give back to their communities.

Long-Term Impact

We want to have more women in influential positions where they are considered to be equal and a driving force behind economic, social and political reform. In this manner, women's issues do not disappear from the political and social agenda and the future female leaders of Myanmar can flourish.
