KWO wrapped up a full month of Special Education Training of Trainers.  The training involved 24 participants, including our special education trainers, school directors, and town staff.  People came from all 7 camps where we conduct this important project. A few senior staff from our Nursery School Project also attended since many of the topics covered can help that project as well. The training was conducted by KWO staff along with staff from World Education and the Christian Centre for Development of People with Disabilities.

Training topics that were covered included: Behavior management, Identifying different Disabilities in New Enrollments, Social Inclusion, Learning Disabilities, Assessment, Observation, Helping Children with Autism, Early Intervention, Stimulation for Very Young Children, Learning through Play, Toy Making, Organizing the Classroom, Learning Through Practice, Parenting Skills, Children’s Learning Processes, Child Psychology, Finance and Management, and the KWO Structure.

KWO’s Special Education Project has 4 main components:

  • Early Intervention with young children with disabilities (home visits and at SE Centres)
  • Inclusive Education (in mainstream school, SE Centres and home visits)
  • School for students with hearing impairments
  • School for students with visual impairments

About Karen Women Organisation

The Karen Women Organisation was formed in 1949 and has a membership of over 64,100 women. KWO is a community-based organisation of Karen women working in development and relief in the refugee camps on the Thai border and with IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) and women inside Burma. Since our formation in 1949 we have expanded our focus from one of purely social welfare to try to encourage an awareness of Women's Rights and to promote women’s participation in the community decision making and political processes. The objectives of the KWO  To assist women in the endeavour to be free from all forms of oppression.  To promote and empower women in all spheres of life, including education and general living standards.  To encourage women to participate in the struggle for freedom, democracy and equality.  To develop women's knowledge, ability and skills, including political and organizational skills.  To achieve the rights of women and equal status with men.  To promote and maintain Karen culture and traditions.  To improve the well-being of women and children and to increase their access to adequate health, education and welfare services. KWO aims to empower women through offering various capacity building trainings to teach skills, build confidence and create new opportunities so that women will be better able to solve problems. We are working hard to educate ourselves and our communities so that we can work more effectively and advocate for our struggle on the international stage. We believe that women’s contribution is an essential factor in the peace-building and national reconciliation processes of Burma.
