SAW organized the Women Empowerment Training for Women at Women’s Crisis Centre on December 29, 2008. It aimed to know the women about their rights, to notice their skills and to be able to self-reliance on them and to be able to help others. The American students facilitated the training and the women of WCC shared experiences with them.
Social Action for Women (SAW) was founded in June 25, 2000 to assist displaced women from Burma who are in crisis situations after having fled to Mae Sod, Thailand. SAW is based in Mae Sod and was established to support women facing difficulties through the provision of shelter, health education, rights awareness, counseling, and vocational training for unskilled women.
