HELP CHANGE A GIRL'S LIFE. AND YOURS.
In Sub-Saharan Africa alone, 28 million girls between the ages 6-15 are not in school. They are denied their basic human rights leaving them in a tedius cycle of gender-biased poverty resulting from a lack of education.
When you sponsor a girl, you achieve a special kind of giving that creates a relationship between you and the community where WEX' caring professionals are helping to change the future. Sponsorship provides essential aid and education to improve the well-being of girls. It gives you the opportunity to witness young lives transformed for the future.

INVEST IN SKILL BUILDING FOR WOMEN
Give women another chance at education. In Sub- Saharan Africa 49% of the women aged 15 and above are not literate.
Women are the pillars of a society when empowered. Societies across the continent are patriachal leaving women with no voice in their community and a lack of clear understanding of policies and procedures. Investing in empowering women socio-economically through our different vehicles not only leaves the women empowered but ensures a family has a meal on the table.
