Social Welfare Program

Social Welfare Program: KWO provides direct assistance to community members and works to solve social problems in the community. We run safe houses, provide counseling and practical assistance for women and girls who have suffered sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and support them through the justice systems. We provide care to the elderly, sick, or families in trouble. We arrange activities and ceremonies to maintain traditional Karen culture and identity. We coordinate an income generation project, supporting women through the sale of traditional Karen handicrafts and goods from small shops in our Resource Centres.

Projects under the Social Welfare Program

KWO is an ethnic women’s community-based organization that empowers women so they have capacity and power to solve their own problems and participate in decision-making that will affect their lives. Morden by Automatic theme, customised by KWO, copyright 2019
