Get ready for the Big Give

Women’s Education Partnership (WEP) is excited to be participating in a new campaign – one in which your donations will be doubled by money pledged to WEP from a ‘match pot’ of £10,150.

It’s called the BIG GIVE Christmas Challenge 2021. It is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.

It runs from midday 30 November to midday 7 December 2021. For your donation to be doubled it must be donated between these two dates.

We hope you will want to donate to WEP. We provide education for women and girls in Sudan and South Sudan, including literacy classes for refugee women, schooling for orphan children and full scholarships for disadvantaged women to attend local universities.

Please visit: www.thebiggive.org.uk between 30th November and 7th December and donate to Women’s Education Partnership’s campaign ‘Power to the Powerless through Education’ through the Big Give site.

The BIG GIVE is a registered charity (1136547). It features over 10,000 charities and WEP is proud to be participating this year.

Thank you for supporting Women’s Education Partnership in helping disadvantaged women in Sudan and South Sudan.

Upcoming Event: Words Matter

Join Women’s Education Partnership (WEP) for a virtual evening in the company of internationally-acclaimed Sudanese author, Leila Aboulela, whose literary works paint an enriching human picture of a country frequently misunderstood. Sudan is on the cusp of Africa and the Middle East, with a booming and historic women’s rights scene.

Leila will touch on her childhood in Khartoum, the importance of girls’ education and her navigation of issues of faith and identity, both on the page and in her own life’s journey.

The event will take place on Wednesday 8th September at 7pm.
