Challenge

Myanmar has suffered an oppressive regime, the country's economy has completely collapsed and extreme poverty is a reality for the majority of people living there. For women it's harder as only 38% are in paid employment - culturally, extreme gender inequality in Myanmar has been normalised. Women are heavily underrepresented in education, business and politics. We women along with many strong women within Myanmar and your help, are working to change this!

Solution

The aim of the We Women Foundation is to assist women into leadership positions within policy-making or influential organisations through: Scholarships: to enable women to complete tertiary education Training: to develop the project management, business management, and executive-level skills of women. Networks: creating strong multi-discipline networks across the more marginalised ethnic areas in Myanmar and linking them together at a national level to give women one powerful voice.

Long-Term Impact

Through their influence on reform, policy, business and leadership, the emerging women leaders are able empower other women and their communities and promote positive social change in their own terms.
