Women’s Education Project (WEP) helps young women succeed in higher education and careers. Through partnerships with established grassroots NGOs whose programs end at the 10th grade, WEP’s resource centers 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 and Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh and Bangalore, Karnataka.
Graduates of WEP centers have gone on to become teachers, computer operators, paralegals, health care workers, entrepreneurs and house wives. Educated and employed, they bring income to their homes, provide health care, nutritious food and health care and ensure their children’s education.
Women’s Education Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization registered in the State of New York.
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.
