  • Need

    Need

    Wonder works to empower local women and girls in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In many of the countries where we work the education of girls is regarded less important than of boys and the consequences of this are long lasting. Girls who are not in education, training or employment are more likely to enter into early-marriage and motherhood and are at higher risk of abuse and trafficking. Our projects offer safe environments for women to learn and develop personally and professionally.

    Solution

    By breaking down the financial barrier that vulnerable women and girls face when entering educating. Our students have access to high quality education programmes which are designed and led by local people. Students receive 1-2-1 mentoring and support to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. With the skills and knowledge attained women and girls are empowered to make positive choices, secure good jobs and earn to provide for themselves and their families.

    Impact

    Women and girls who are supported and educated through our projects will develop personally and professionally. The long-term impact of this will see these women enter into safe employment, with opportunities to grow and progress and to earn a living that will support themselves and their families to lift themselves out of poverty.

    Potential risks include lack of donations and lack of funding. We have dealt with these risks by looking into sustainable funding methods that will ensure longevity of our projects.
