Womens Education Project Overview
Programs: Sudar (meaning Light in Tamil) is WEP’s first center. Founded in 2002, seventy students currently attend the WEP-Sudar center, and of these, forty receive scholarships to local colleges. Once the college day has finished, students come to the center to enjoy nutritious snacks with friends and study in the library and garden.
Each semester, students choose between study skills, English, and computer courses. On weekends and during vacations, they may attend a teacher-training program, the lecture series on health, finance, civics and the environment, and local field trips to introduce them to career opportunities.
