Establishment of RWU

Rakhaing Women’s Union (RWU) was founded on 14th November 1998 in Bangladesh-Burma-Border under the leadership of Saw MraRaza Linn, who is also a prominent 8888 democracy activist in Rakhaing State, Myanmar.

When RWU was founded, her first aim was to work on freedom of Rakhaing with the active participation of women, education and health program and basic needs of refugee women and children along the Bangladesh-Burma-Border. Later, her objectives were added to develop the status of Women and to make them free from discrimination, from violence against Women and also to work on Peace and Democracy in Myanmar.

In 1999 Women League of Burma was founded and RWU became the main founder of it.

After 24 years in exiled life, Saw Mra Raza Linn was allowed to return to her country on 26th August 2012 for discussion on Peace Talk, then RWU office was opened in Sittway and members of RWU are working closely with people Rakhaing Pray.

Now, Rakhaing Women’s Union is working on National Reconciliation, Peace and Negotiation process of Burma(Myanmar) and trying to participate in every decision making level.
