Challenge

Most women in rural Sindh have never been educated due to a reserved culture, and not having a school near by made it harder for them to access education. This deprived a women from achieving her rights such as, the right to education, decision making, freedom, good health, and good future with prosperity. When a woman has her own children, the cycle continues, and there is large percentage of girls that are out of school in rural Sindh with no prospects of an educated future.

Solution

Women's empowerment program (WEP) is designed to address these key issues to save the future of women and girls in rural Sindh. If one woman is educated, she can educate her whole household. WEP provides trainings that include teaching about importance of education, advocacy, health hygiene, and women's rights. This is to help a woman become empowered and take stand for her self and her family through educating themselves. Adult Literacy Education has been recently added to the WEP program.

Long-Term Impact

The project has reached over 2000 women directly benefiting from Women's Empowerment Program. After attending the WEP training, the women experience a change of mindset about the importance of education & are motivated to educate their children. These women have been catalysts to increase girls enrollment in PEP schools, are doing advocacy in groups, and are now seeking education for themselves through community built Adult Literacy Centers because of a transformed mind.
