Empower Burmese Migrant Women this holiday season!

by Foundation for Education and Development (GHRE)

Dear Supporters,

We are pleased to inform you that WEDA is once again providing important training to Burmese Migrant Women in Phang Nga, Thailand.  In July, WEDA led by Ma Ni Ni Wan conducted two community visits called “Women Exchange”. The purpose is to give Burmese Migrant Women information about gender and domestic violence. WEDA has been working to have Burmese Migrant women to be increasingly aware of this topic throughout the community.

Topic: The aim of this session was to talk about gender and domestic violence.

Attached you will find a report of the activity.

October-December 2011

FED and WEDA would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to those who have generously contributed to the Women’s Education and Development Association’s Global Giving campaign, aimed at providing educational workshops for Burmese migrant women in Thailand. 

Because of your support, WEDA has been able to continue hosting three Women Exchanges every month.  During the most recent Exchange in Kuraburi on December 6th, the women spoke with FED’s Medic about health related issues, concerns and preventative measures.  In addition, computer-training classes have been offered to help improve the women’s computer literacy, providing them with new work opportunities.

As WEDA continues to raise awareness and provide new opportunities for these women, we hope that during this holiday season, you will ask your family and friends for a donation on your behalf, to the WEDA Holiday Campaign.  Please continue to make a difference in the lives of Burmese migrant women!

On behalf of FED and WEDA, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to those who have generously contributed to the Global Giving project aimed at providing educational workshops for Burmese migrant women.  We, as well as the future Burmese women recipients of these gifts, are immensely thankful for the responses, the support, and the time you have given in pursuit of this cause.  While education and rights awareness are of the utmost importance and beyond the confines of a price or monetary value, these are projects that FED will continue to provide thanks to the community of support we are fortunate enough to have made with you.  As we maintain communication with our valued supporters, please do continue to look out for ways you can support the Burmese migrant community through the work that FED is doing and through our future Global Giving campaigns.  Thank you again for your support and compassion.
