Karenni National Women’s Organization (KNWO) was established in 1993 in Nai Soi refugee camp in north-west Thailand, by Karenni women from Karenni state. Through the years, KNWO has gained recognition as a leading organization in the promotion and protection of women’s rights in Karenni state and in the refugee camps.
Our vision is for every woman and girl to make their own choices in their lives, enjoy full equal rights, and live free from violence.
