Changing Views on Daughters of Burma

EMBARC is a human services organization led by Burmese refugees. Burmese cultures traditionally espouse a view of male superiority, and the experience of living in refugee camps and being resettled in the United States can potentially disrupt that view. Funds will be used for the development, testing, and delivery of a parenting curriculum to influence how mothers think about opportunities and aspirations for their daughters. EMBARC’s mothers learn about Western parenting norms and are trained to teach others in peer-based learning circles.
