    • About

      WGEP is an Oak Park-based international nonprofit organization that focused on access to education and literacy for young people in Africa, especially rural and marginalized women and girls.

      Women’s Global Education Project (WGEP) was founded in 2003 to address the education needs of rural and marginalized girls in Africa who fall through the cracks of larger initiatives. Through its Sisters to School program, 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 an holistic approach by involving the communities and finding solutions for other contextual barriers that may keep girls from an education.
