Global: Lasallian Women of Hope program ensures educational access

The Lasallian Women of Hope program is a compassionate outreach to females attending Lasallian schools around the globe.  Through the program’s grants, women and girls are empowered to overcome small challenges which would otherwise impede their continuing education. 

The mission of Lasallian Women of Hope (LWH) is to ensure girls and women enjoy full access to Lasallian education. Beginning as a small project providing grassroots female empowerment, LWH provides sustainable solutions to mitigate obstacles impeding educational access. Through its grants, LWH delivers creative, effective, and durable solutions to educational inequities for girls and women.

Lasallian Women of Hope’s initial grassroots program began at Mwagnaza College in 2016 with “The Pad Project” which provided Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) and personal hygiene products so female students could uninterruptedly attend school.   But it didn’t stop there.  In other settings around the world, females have small obstacles which impede their continuously attending classes and achieving academic success.  Some women need feminine products. Other women need additional academic support.  Still others face food insecurities.  All too often, small obstacles often keep young women from achieving large successes in Lasallian classrooms.  

To rectify these challenges, the Lasallian Women of Hope program offers transformative grants which are designed to provide local and sustainable assistance to women in need.  Through its international council, the program is extending its small-grants assistance to females around the globe. Each program can be funded up to three years as LWH encourages the development of sustainability in each program/project.
