All dollars count and do so much:

$10 will provide student bus fare from the village to college for one month

$25 will support a student's college texts and notebooks

$50 will provide daily nutritious snacks at the center for one month

$100 will provide college tuition for one student.

$250 (all of the above) and WEP's academic support for one year

1. Women from the poorest communities want to be teachers, doctors and entrepreneurs. They need a college education to pursue these dreams.

2. Educated women become leaders in their community to address the problems to which they live closest: illness, water shortages, pollution ...

3. Educated women have smaller, healthier, better educated families. They can obtain higher salaries with which to lift their families from poverty.
