Through the Conflict Response Fund, we are embarking on a mission to reach women and adolescent girls in Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar.
With true dedication to the communities we serve, we are honored to announce our recent Conflict Response Fund project in Myanmar. Through our newly established partnership with the Center for Social Integrity, a locally registered NGO, the project targets support to Rohingya women and adolescent girls to improve their basic literacy, numeracy, and life skills and to build their capacity to become more meaningfully engaged within their communities.
Following the 2017 forced displacement and genocide, the Rohingya continue to face conflict, displacement, discrimination, and grave human rights abuses. Women and girls are especially at risk.
We hope to achieve the following impact with the “Enhancing Literacy and Meaningful Participation of Women and Adolescent Girls in Northern Rakhine State, Myanmar" project:
The classes will be led by Rohingya women teachers from the local community – who are not legally permitted to work as teachers in Myanmar because of their ethnicity. The Rohingya women teachers will also benefit from training and capacity building support, which truly aligns with our mission at Women for Women International.
Share in this groundbreaking time and aid in the creation of better futures for the women and girls of Myanmar. DONATE
