Women’s Education for Advancement and Empowerment (WEAVE) strives to create a world where empowered women and their children are free to exercise their rights and live peacefully in a just, humane and equitable society
30 Years in action
The organization was founded in 1990, with the intent to empower indigenous women and support their needs and basic human rights. The organization has evolved over the years, especially in the context of the influx of refugees from Burma.
We are women and men of diverse ethnic and geographical backgrounds who are committed to gender equality. As individuals and as an organization, we are committed to working with marginalized, oppressed, poor and exploited women and children from Thailand, Burma and some regions in Asia.
We believe that the leadership of women and the development of their status benefits their communities. We support the expansion of women’s power, rights, and opportunities by sponsoring women’s organizations in our target communities.
We strengthen the efforts of these organizations as they continually build the capacities of these women to become self-reliant enabling them to fully participate in the development of their communities.
WEAVE strives to create a world where empowered women and their children are free to exercise their rights and live peacefully in a just, humane and equitable society.
