Women’s Education Partnership (formerly known as ‘Together for Sudan’) is an organization that has been funding educational projects in Sudan and South Sudan since 1999. Their mission is to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and children in deprived areas. They work to develop literacy circles and training programs, support education programs and healthcare for women and girls, and fund university scholarships for women. We were particularly interested to get involved in their Elementary School projects whereby they provide schools with equipment, uniforms for children and training and resources for teachers.
Between 2011 and 2013, COS collaborated with TFS to sponsor ten orphans with AIDS at Kenneth Frazer Elementary School in Omdurman. The money raised was used to fund the salary of two of their teachers who were working at the school on a voluntary basis.
We also raised money to support their project for basic Elementary schools in the Khartoum IDP areas in 2017.
This was such a great initiative that we were so honoured to be a part of, and plan to continue to work WEP with focus on supporting the education of orphans.
