Season’s Greetings 2022

With thanks to everyone who has given their time to follow our work this year.

Christmas Message from our new Chair of Trustees, Abdul Aziz Suliman

Abdul became Chair of Trustees at Women’s Education Partnership just six months ago but has hit the ground running.

Christmas Message from our new Chair of Trustees, Abdul Aziz Suliman

“I am delighted to report that, thanks to your kind donations, we have been able to sponsor over 50 young women undergraduates this year. They are studying medicine, midwifery, management, rural development and psychology at some of Khartoum’s most respected universities. It is wonderful to know that these sponsored undergraduates will soon become key frontline workers who will, in their turn, empower the next generation of Sudanese women. And, of course, that you, our supporters, have made this possible.”

“Your kindness has also meant that we have been able to contribute to vital repairs to flood-damaged schools around Khartoum. We have provided uniforms for poor young girls starting primary school so they can feel fully included in the life of the school. We have also trained around 50 teachers in the latest teaching methods as well as in safeguarding, child mental health and wellbeing, assessment techniques and school management. All this means our sponsored elementary pupils will receive a fuller, richer education while their teachers have the chance to develop key professional skills – something so important In the aftermath of the Covid 19 pandemic.” More in Scenes from Our Orphans’ Schooling Programme

“We have continued to support and run 15 literacy circles for women in some of the most deprived communities of the capital. For the first time, this year we were able to mark International Literacy Day by bringing together women from all our literacy circles, together with their literacy workers in a memorable celebration. Our eye care clinic has continued to treat women with eye health problems and help them to access much needed medical care.

All our projects are managed on the ground by our four diligent staff in Khartoum who work tirelessly to ensure the success of our programmes. We hope to expand our projects to give particular support to disabled women in our literacy scholarships and teacher training scholarships. We also aim to put aside up to 5% of our income to work on projects relating to climate change, water management, carbon footprints and soil mapping.” See too Keeping Girls in School

“To all those who have supported us in 2022 – enabling us to keep WEP’s activities going, a big thank you from everyone at Women’s Education Partnership. I will be visiting Sudan over the holidays and will be sure to convey thanks on both sides for the hard work of all our trustees, volunteers, staff and donors.” 

With much appreciation and looking forward to a successful 2023.
