Women’s Education Project (WEP) is dedicated to helping young women succeed in higher education and careers. Through partnerships with established grassroots NGOs whose programs end at the 10th grade, WEP develops resource centers which provide students academic, financial and social support to ensure their high school and college graduation and employment. Founded in 2002, WEP, a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization with headquarters in New York, operates centers in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh and Bangalore, Karnataka. Graduates of WEP centers have gone on to become teachers, computer operators, paralegals, health care workers and entrepreneurs. Educated and employed, they bring 58%* more income and better food and health care into their homes—breaking the cycle of poverty. *Based on WEP alumnae data.
