For Young Women to become Economically Independent Community Leaders

Women’s Education Project (WEP) educates young women to become knowledgeable, confident and responsible leaders. It does this by providing grassroots NGOs its Leadership Academy, a locally-sourced, holistic curriculum for women, ages 15 to 24, to make informed choices for themselves and positive change in their families and communities. Within a spirited community of peers, they gain knowledge, skills, and a broad understanding of their opportunities. Graduates enter formal sector careers or pursue alternative, entrepreneurial livelihoods of their own choosing.
