Women’s Education Project provides academic, social and financial resources for young women from families living on less than $1.50 a day to succeed in college and careers.
At Centers in Madurai, Hyderabad, Kadapa and Bangalore, South India, women enhance their academic preparation, mentor with career professionals, and enlarge their vision of life’s possibilities. Equally important, they gain confidence and, perhaps for the first time in their lives, discover a sense of self.
Upon acceptance at college, WEP provides funds for tuition, books and transportation and continued academic and social support. After graduation, career guidance continues to job placement, and, for many, the beginning of a successful career.
Founded in 2002, WEP is a New York based 501c3 not for profit organization.
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.
