Women's Global Education Project (WGEP) provides access to quality education and develops training programs that empower women and girls in rural Africa to build better lives and foster equitable and sustainable communities. Recognizing that educating girls in marginalized and impoverished communities is a multi-faceted challenge, WGEP takes a holistic approach by involving the communities and finding solutions for other contextual barriers that may keep girls from an 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.

One of the vital support services WGEP provides is partial scholarships. Partial scholarships cover tutoring costs and the books and supplies needed to help girls pass key grade-level exams. These partial scholarships are awarded to girls in rural Senegal, covering the costs of tutoring, books, and other supplies needed to help girls pass their exams and move

Over the years, we have seen their strong positive effects of our partial scholarships. In 2016, the most recent year for which results are available, 73% of our Senegalese elementary scholars passed their final exam, compared to 49.84% in the Fatick region where we work. Moreover, 79.63% of our Senegalese middle school scholars passed their grade-level exam, compared to a passing rate of 40.47% in the wider region. Finally, our high school scholars achieved a passing rate of 42.14%, compared to 30.29% in the Fatick region as a whole. Through these numbers, we can see the great positive impact of academic support programs such as our partial scholarship tutoring program.

Thank you for supporting WGEP's education programs in rural Senegal!
