Below is a wonderful note from one of our students. She is from a poor family – her parents weave items from cloth and bamboo, and she has three younger brothers. Her younger brothers are all in school, and the eldest has begun working at a small company.

“I was keen to study and I felt very sad about my family position. Then I came to know about WEP and with the help of my school teacher I joined the local program. I am now studying happily with the support of WEP. Here many trainings are provided which I came to know about and learnt a lot, like domestic violence, photography, medicinal plants training, and health camp. I gained a lot of knowledge through these trainings. The exposure visits are also very useful and I enjoyed very much with all my friends. My parents are now feeling very happy with the support that WEP is giving me. My parents and I are very thank full to WEP.”
