The Big Give Christmas Campaign 2022
Women’s Education Partnership is delighted to announce that the Coles-Medlock Foundation will champion our charity during this year’s Christmas Challenge event promising to double our match pot fundraising to nearly £17,000.
We are a small charity run by volunteers. The Coles-Medlock Foundation support for our fundraising means a great deal to us and to the deprived women and girls in Sudan and South Sudan to whom our projects give life-changing opportunities through education.
Women’s Education Partnership thanks the Coles-Medlock Foundation for this most generous act, augmenting the pledges we have raised and giving us the opportunity to expand our work even more than we dared hope through The Big Give Christmas Campaign.

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
