Burmese Women's Union
We are an independent association aiming to unite and empower the women of Burma, both along the Thailand, India and China borders and internationally. Membership with BWU is open to all women of Burma regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, marital status, sexual preference, or livelihood. Part of our mission is to respond to the social welfare needs of its members and provide short and long- term educational and vocational training programs for women. We send our representatives to regional and international forums and conferences to highlight the situation of women in Burma as well as to gain international advocacy skills and establish a network of international and regional women's organizations.
