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
