School for Pa-O Women

The School for Pa-O Women opened in August 2010 with twelve students. The young women, all members of the Pa-O tribe, study subjects that they would not have the opportunity to study in Burma. These include Human and Women’s Rights, Democracy, Conflict Analysis and Resolution, Burmese History and Politics, Environment, and English. Upon completion of the ten-month school year, students return to Burma to work as educators in their communities. PWU will assist them with this transition.
