Women's Education for Advancement & Empowerment (WEAVE)

The continuing conflict in Burma has displaced thousands of ethnic minority women, many of whom end up in refugee camps on the Thai border, with limited educational opportunities (camp-based schools end at 10th grade). WEAVE, in partnership with local, indigenously-led Burmese refugee organizations, provides a comprehensive suite of programs to address this education gap, including health education, income generation, early childhood development, and women’s capacity development.
