The We women foundation strives for equality for different groups of people in the world. We women is committed to encouraging creative initiatives and supporting personal growth, mental and emotional health as well as education for women, refugees, ethnic minorities and disadvantaged groups by giving them the opportunity to formulate their own needs within their communities without enforcing outsider beliefs upon them. We women’s ultimate goal is equality for all.
We women foundation’s 2014 campaign, Educate One, Empower Thousands, is focused on raising funds that will be directed towards higher education for the women of Burma. Many minority women in Burma are passionate about taking part in the struggle for human rights and the fight for democracy, but without higher education, they are often pushed back into traditional roles that do not permit them the freedom and mobility to contribute to Burma’s economic, social, and political future. Higher education enables qualified scholarship recipients to eventually attain leadership positions where they can influence change, drive social reform, and most importantly–empower thousands more to do the same.
Check out our new campaign video on vimeo, featuring interviews with our Founder and Executive Director as well as one of our scholarship students!
