Ta’ang Women’s Organization (TWO)
TWO’s mission is
“To advocate for and advance the status of women in the field of development and working towards achieving gender equality, justice, peace and a democratic society.”
We observed that in Ta’ang community, women are being discriminated and have lower roles than men in every sector, such as in economic, social and national platforms. We also observed that women have no chance to involve in leadership roles. Ta’ang Women’s Organization was founded on Thai-Burma border, on 14 October 2000, aiming for Ta’ang women to become more confident, to be able to participate in decision making in every sector, and to be able to take leadership roles.
