“My goal is to provide support to disadvantaged youth and women on education and
vocational training so that they can learn to stand on their own two feet just like I did.”
Suzana, pictured here, is a young woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship in the
past year thanks to your help. Born in Chittagong, Bangladesh, Suzana is a third year student at
the Asian University for Women studying Politics, Philosophy, and Economics with a minor in
Development Studies. Her long term goal is opening a school for the underprivileged which will
be an educational facility for children in the morning, vocational training center for women in the
evening, and a shelter for the homeless at night. In addition to this amazing local goal, she
would love to work for UNESCO and is very passionate about diplomacy and engaging in
discussions about world affairs.
Suzana’s recent achievements include her upcoming graduation on the 12th of May, her past
internship at Wedu, future internship at the Yunus Center at the Asian Institute of
Technology, and organizing a conference in South Korea in August.
Suzana is one of over 500 young women Wedu currently supports. We call
these young women Rising Stars and support them through mentorship and scholarships to
complete higher education and become changemakers in their communities. Each Rising Star is
passionate about creating positive social change in her community and at Wedu, we believe
that investing in women's leadership not only empowers women but also has a multiplier effect
on improving the development of communities and countries as a whole.
We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by
donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Scholarship. Your contribution directly supports women
like Suzana by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive
social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of over USD 2500 in online
donations to contribute towards scholarships, an amount that can provide financial support to
more Rising Stars! We look forward to sending more exciting Rising Star updates and achievements in coming
months.
Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!
With gratitude,
The Wedu Team

ZamZam, pictured here, is a 23 year old woman who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship in the past year thanks to your help. Born in Chittagong, Bangladesh, ZamZam is a third year student at Southern Bangladesh University. Her future goals include pursuing a law degree and working in human rights since she is very passionate about representing her community issues and developments internationally.

Among her other achievements, ZamZam has recently been published in a law journal called Society for Critical Legal Studies on the topic of 'Discrimination of Deserted Women of Bangladesh: Some Elementary Thoughts.'

 

ZamZam is one of the 590 young women Wedu currently supports. We call these young women Rising Stars and support them through mentorship and scholarships to complete higher education and become changemakers in their communities. Each Rising Star is passionate about creating positive social change in her community. At Wedu, we believe that investing in women's leadership not only empowers women but also has a multiplier effect on improving the development of communities and countries as a whole.

We are particularly proud of the report of impact that our Rising Stars are sending via video to share their stories and what they love about the Wedu leadership program. Please go on our website to find all the video or follow this link http://www.weduglobal.org/rs-video-competition/

Many partners are approaching us to organise projects to grow together in places from Bangladesh to Cambodia. We are honoured and excited to be able to go wider and deeper to spot and nurture talent, where it may be!

Thank you for being with us and for your important contribution, we wouldn't be able to reach so many Rising Stars without you!

Happy Holidays from the whole Wedu Team!

“I hope that in the future I am able to serve my community and country by founding schools and letting everyone, regardless of their economic level and gender, set beside each other and study to have a bright, open-minded, and different generation of men and women in Afghanistan.”

Parvin, pictured here, is a 24-year-old woman who has benefitted from scholarships from Wedu in the past year thanks to your help. Originally from Afghanistan, Parvin recently graduated from the Asian University for Women in Chittagong, Bangladesh with her Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics and is working towards her goal of initiating a free literacy program for girls in her community so that they’re able to continue their education. She is passionate about social change and women’s education and wants to work to improve her community, a goal that has risen from her professional focus and passion for equality.

Parvin has been able to pursue her education through Wedu's financial support and through her own proactivity, in fact, just last year she was selected and awarded to conduct her own independent research study on Bacha Posh, a traditional practice in Kabul, and successfully submitted her original work for her thesis. Among her achievements, Parvin was also selected as an academic administrator at her school and has led workshops for other students focused on community discussion and conflict resolution.

Parvin is one of the 405 young women Wedu currently supports. We call these young women Rising Stars and support them through mentorship and scholarships to complete higher education and become changemakers in their communities. Each Rising Star is passionate about creating positive social change in her community and at Wedu, we believe that investing in women's leadership not only empowers women but also has a multiplier effect on improving the development of communities and countries as a whole.

We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Scholarship. Your contribution directly supports women like Parvin by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of $2,258 total in online donations to contribute towards scholarships, an amount that can provide financial support to more Rising Stars this year than ever before. Thank you again so much for your donation and we look forward to sending more exciting Rising Star updates and achievements in coming months.

Thank you for helping our Rising Stars keep rising!

With gratitude,
