PS we’re not just staying this. It has been proven in a multitude of academic studiesSlide4
The way to create lasting positive change in society is to ensure the women that are educated are then free to take on leadership roles across community, government, and in business.Slide5
The UN recognises this as a global priority, and the We women foundation dedicates itself to making it a reality in MyanmarSlide6

Here’s what we do to make change a reality
Our recently launched programme in Myanmar provides training to develop the project management, business management, and executive-level skills of women. This unique program provides an opportunity for women from marginalised communities to build upon their strengths and entrepreneurial skills.
We provide scholarships to enable women to complete tertiary education. Each scholarship runs on the understanding that women will return to their region to take an active leadership role to be the change for the future.
We create strong multi-discipline networks across the ethnic areas in Myanmar and link them together at a national level to give them one single strong voice together – more powerful for influencing and working for change!

Small actions really can make a big difference
“I won a medal for outstanding student and received a certificate, since my GPA is over 3.5. I was flabbergasted, when they called my name for the gold medal, as there were only 3 students who were granted a medal. With this I would like to say that I am thankful for the place where I currently am in life. For that I would like to express my deepest heartfelt gratitude to the donor and we Women for your continuous support, without you I wouldn't be standing proudly here today.”Slide15
We would welcome your support in whichever way, shape or form you can provide it.THANK YOU!
