The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2023
Women’s Education Partnership is delighted to once again take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to support our vital work educating women and girls in Sudan and South Sudan.
In this Big Give campaign, your donation will be doubled from the match pot kindly pledged to WEP by generous supporters and by our champion back The Reed Foundation.
The campaign starts at midday on 28th November and we will post the link on here to donate.
Our current priority is supporting literacy programmes and sponsoring diplomas in healthcare is South Sudan. In Sudan we are dedicated to delivering our literacy and education programmes as and when it is safe to do so.
Power to the Powerless through Education
Women’s Education Partnership has been funding educational projects in Sudan and what is now South Sudan, since 1999. Our mission is to improve the lives of women and children, with a particular focus on those in marginalised areas.
In Sudan, literacy rates are significantly lower for women than men. Indeed, many women, displaced through civil unrest or economic hardship, may have had no education at all. Our aim is to empower disadvantaged women so that they may lead better lives. We do this through three main targeted aims:
– To develop literacy circles and training programmes
– To support education programmes and healthcare for women and girls
– To fund university scholarships for women
