At WEP Centers in India, young women receive scholarships to local colleges. After the college day, they come to study in the library and computer lab, attend tutorials and enjoy daily nutritious snacks. On weekends and holidays, they attend I am a Leader workshops and field trips – a life-skills program designed and planned by the students themselves. Most importantly, they are a supportive community of friends who together discover confidence and their Voice.
WEP alumnae are college graduates. 64% have found employment as teachers, administrative assistants, NGO staff, nurses, accountants and computer operators. As a college graduate, they more than doubled their earning potential.
WEP operates Centers in partnership with NGOs in Madurai, Hyderabad and Kadapa, India.
