Thank you for your continued support of Women's Global Education Project! Your support helps us provide scholarships and support to girls in rural Kenya who would otherwise not have the chance to go to school--girls like Aliana, whose inspiring story tells us that our work is making a difference--thank you for partnering with us!


“Education has changed my life--I can face the world with a lot of confidence and do great things.”  

Meet Aliana, a very bright and passionate young woman whose family would not have been able to afford to send her to secondary school had it not been for our WGEP Kenya program. Aliana was in our program for four years, excelling in school and graduating. She wanted to go further in her studies but could not afford post-secondary schooling. WGEP Kenya Project Coordinator Aniceta Kiriga helped Aliana apply for and get a scholarship to attend the Kenya Institution of Studies and Criminal Justice in Meru. Aliana is now studying social work and community development.

“I’ve really been empowered by our program,” Aliana says. “I want to help people overcome their poverty levels. By sharing knowledge, we can improve our living standards.”
