A Day of Celebration for Women's Education Partnership
Samia Omar, founder of Khartoum International Community School and Patron of WEP presents a cheque to Neimat Hussein ( WEP country coordinator ) for 127,500 Sudan pounds ( around $7000) This money, raised locally at KICS, is specifically given to WEP to support our work.
Arafa, Jebani,and Remag,three of our current scholars representing the 100 who are presently supported at university by WEP, tell their stories. They would have been unable to attend university without a WEP scholarship. They all said “ Thank you to WEP and KICS and thank you for the opportunity to learn more English which has given them increased confidence”. They have aspirations to graduate and work to enrich the lives of their families, their communities and their nation.

The IB students in year 13 from KICS spoke about how teaching the WEP students helps them widen their horizons and also improves their own communication skills.
This is a true celebration of partnership. We are very appreciative of the generosity of the KICS parents, staff and students. THANK YOU.
