She has peacefully struggled for the rights of women to be ordained as female monks. She was ordained as a female monk in Sri Lanka two years ago.

"The work of these women is a [message] that makes the world know that peace cannot prevail at once, but rather it will happen as a result of collective efforts," Supawadee said. The project's headquarters is in Bern, Switzerland.
