HOW WE ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION
One of our core values is storytelling. We use storytelling to fight hunger, food security, livelihoods, education, and fundamental human rights. Help us tell the story of K'nyaw Poe, our history, culture, identity, and traditions. We believe storytelling is important because it's the voice that will bring positive changes to the world we hope to be in.
It is a vital part of our work to raise awareness that helps displaced K'nyaw Poe affected by the ongoing civil war. We encourage K'nyaw Poe to use their platforms to create change in Kaw Thoo Lei . We use advocacy to be the voice for the voiceless and ensure the protection of K'nyaw Poe in need.
I AM KNYAW is helping K'nyaw Poe in Western countries to embrace their culture, traditions, history, and the people through annual trips back home, Kaw Thoo Lei. Knowing our langauge, history, and cultures equips us with the tools to become active, informed, and engaged global K'nyaw Poe.
I AM KNYAW is faithful to the purpose for which resources are given to manage them in a manner that allows for maximum benefit to the K'nyaw community and K'nyaw individuals we serve.
