For a 3rd year Refugee Empowerment International will support WEAVE’s ongoing work supporting women’s capacity development among the displaced Burmese ethnic women along the Thai-Burma border. This support recognizes the United Nations, 2003 assertion that “the capacity to be assertive in society is particularly important for women, whose empowerment affects their lives, those of other women and those of their family” and that the “impact of an educated woman on her family’s well-being is consistently strong worldwide”.
