Worldwide Burmese Students is a student-run non-profit organization based in Europe with members from all over the world. It was founded on the 31st of January in 2021, with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as its inspiration, with the aim for students to connect with the world leaders and discuss prospects of sustainability for Burma and the Burmese communities.
The organization is founded on the principles of integrity, knowledge, and empowerment. We believe that revolutionary works start with the unified work of many like-minded individuals who come together and work towards the same cause.
We aim to provide social, intellectual & self-development events for students interested in international affairs focused on Burma and allow the students to broaden their social network as well as gain professional experience for their future careers while reconnecting with their roots. The main aim is to train the next leaders of Burma to become leaders who walk on the path of democracy and freedom, with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as the main inspiration and example.
WBS is determined to achieve this through three parts of the organization. The first one is the teashop. As in Myanmar, students hang out often at tea shops after lectures, and that is what this group is for. At the teashop, WBS representatives can invite their friends to join the conversations and events. This is a more informal way to connect with each other.
The second part is the academy, hereby WBS selects five students to become a fellow of WBS and get trained for a year by Burmese and International leaders, to represent the organization.
The third part is, the students who made it through the academy meet up and organize projects for WBS worldwide next to giving advice and consultancy, with a focus on Burma, to organizations, governments, and the private sector. Hereby the representatives are divided into various groups that focus on specific roles and issues.
We, as WBS, are all self-driven with the passion to work towards creating a sustainable democratic nation, and this means working strategically in areas where it can be most beneficial and efficient.
