The Big Give Christmas Campaign 2022

The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022 has now finished.  A huge thank you to all who donated and our champions, the Coles-Medlock Foundation. Together you helped raise nearly £30,000 for our vital work empowering women in Sudan and South Sudan through education.

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
