We regard education in Sudan and
South Sudan as a human right and promote personal and
community empowerment through service, taking our lead from what displaced
and marginalized people say they need.
"Power to the
powerless through education"
We believe that education of women is
the central building block of civil society. Our work is carried out through
a United Kingdom charity:
The Women's Education Partnership
"Building peace through service"
There are eight Sudanese aid
workers in our project centres in Khartoum and Juba, who
supervise our projects in the Khartoum area and in South
Sudan. Sadly we have had to close our centre in Kadugli
because of fighting in the area, so our projects in the Nuba
Mountains are currently suspended.
We draw no religious or cultural boundaries, following
the example of Sudanese and South Sudanese Christians and Muslims working
together to ensure a better future for those whose lives
have been shattered by war and displacement in Sudan and
All patrons, trustees and officials of the Women's Education
Partnership are volunteers and work from home.
Peter our Director is not one to wait for others to act. So
together with Penny and a small band of supporters he recently
walked 30 miles along the Lancaster canal tow path for
sponsorship to raise funds for our students.
The walk took
three days from Aug 24th to 26th and has raised £1000 so far.
