Girl Up Yangon is part of a international organization connected to the UN that works towards women’s empowerment and gender equality. The main goals of this group are to create awareness in order to advocate for change, to take action within the community and foster tolerance. Being part of Girl Up means you are part of a movement that works toward raising awareness within our school and expanding to the greater Yangon community. This is done through discussions of what issues women today face and proposing solutions that are both creative and unique. Girl Up is always looking for proactive and openminded individuals who believe in equality and aren’t afraid to take action in order to see change.
