Women’s Education Project (WEP) Centers provide resources for young women from families living on less than $1.50 a day to graduate from college and begin a career. Within this supportive community, WEP students receive funds for college tuition, books and transportation, study in the library and computer lab and attend the I am a Leader program. As alumnae, (many successfully placed in jobs), they have enlarged their vision of life’s possibilities and equally important, gained confidence and, perhaps for the first time, discovered a sense of self.
It is WEP’s keystone belief that the decisions an educated woman makes as a self-reliant, informed, responsible citizen, effect lasting social change in her own life, her family, and society.
Founded in 2002, WEP is a New York based 501c3 not-for-profit organization.
