Counseling Support Helps Scholars Succeed

Women's Global Education Project employs a holstic approach to girls' education. By covering school fees and living expenses in addition to providing personal effects, mentoring and tutoring, we do all we can to ensure that our scholars can focus their energy on their studies. In this way, we regularly update our programs to meet the ever-expanding needs of our scholars.

At our scholars' request, we have been working to integrate more mental health activities into our programs. Most recently, 56 middle & high school scholars were able to meet with 7 experienced professional counselors. Our goal is to provide moral support to our scholars who are having difficulties so that they can have the tools and support they need to stay in school and succeed. 

WGEP scholar Anthie says about the program, "Since I've been enrolled in the program, I feel that my dreams can be achieved. In addition to receiving school supplies and tutoring, I appreciate the counseling provided. Before receiving counseling, I had many difficulties but felt that there was no one to help me. I had stress from school work and family conflict that I did not know how to resolve. The counselor talked with me and helped me develop the skills and tools I needed to work through my problems. This program also helped me grow my confidence so that I am now more comfortable voicing my opinions."

We hope to grow this program so that all of our program scholars can benefit from this important service.


Thank you for supporting important WGEP initiatives like the Psychological Counseling program!
