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.

A global campaign to promote Sustainable Development Goal #4
provided support to Lasallian Women of Hope Initiatives
During the 2020-2021 academic year, the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN) highlighted LWH as part of a worldwide effort to provide inclusive, equitable and quality education for all. The campaign, “Education: Let’s Build Our Future Together,” was developed by a consortium of International NGOs – including La Salle International. The campaign encouraged Lasallian schools to host classes which financially support and energetically promote the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) to “ensure universal access to inclusive and equitable quality education.” Lasallian Women of Hope was highlighted in this campaign.
Lasallian Women of Hope started with a Kenya Project
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 attend school uninterruptedly.
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. To learn more about the beginnings of Lasallian Women of Hope click here.
