Educating Disadvantaged Women – Building a Hopeful Future

November 2015

Dear Friends,

Women’s Education Partnership is building hope for women in Sudan and South Sudan. We continue to offer university scholarships and training courses to some of the most needy women in Africa. Also, we are extending our adult literacy and eye care programmes, doing more in both countries where there is most need.

On a visit to Khartoum and Juba in October, I met women who continue to struggle as they cope with forces totally outside their control. Most of all the women want increased access to education to help them and their families. They want skills to help them return to their local areas and they want to be agents of hope for the future of their country.

Conversations often ended with the women saying, “Thank you” to Women’s Education Partnership and, “Please give us more.” They did not want material things but increased access to basic and higher education.

Our response is to commit more funds to offering more scholarships and increasing the number of our adult literacy classes and eye care outreaches.

As we grow, we are new forming partnerships with other organisations who wish to work with us and we are seeking new friends and new donors.

This WEP November 2015 newsletter tells something of our story as we work together to build a Hopeful Future for the women.

Thank you if you are already a donor and please consider donating if you are new to WEP. Contact us for more information or join us at one of the two WEP receptions planned for 2016, in Khartoum on Febrauary 6th and at the House of Lords, London on March 15th.
