Our mission is to empower women, girls and their community through access to quality education so that they can exit poverty for good. We recognise the intrinsic dignity of every human being as the basis of their human rights and freedom at each stage of their lives. Each person has the right to be respected and empowered to make informed decisions about their own lives and to give that same respect to those around them.
Established in 2012 as the Women’s Network for Development and Educational and Resources (WONDER), Wonder Foundation is dedicated to empowering vulnerable women and girls through education.
We work with women-led local partners who share our vision of a future where women and girls are leaders in their own lives, their workplaces and communities. In practice, this means giving women and girls with few opportunities access to quality education and mentoring. Equipping them with technical, soft and decision-making skills for professional and personal development, empowers them to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty.
Local approach We work closely with each of our partners to increase their impact through providing financial, technical and advocacy support. Investing in local expertise is the best way to create long-term impact. Our partners’ experience and local knowledge, technical and cultural, allows them to co-produce relevant and effective programmes and to build strong communities of students, alumni, their families, volunteers and others. Each partner is different, and we adapt to their needs.
We work for real, long-term change Real change takes time - whether it’s personal, professional, or community-wide. That’s why students in our partner projects receive mentoring to make sure that they are able to complete their education and fulfil their potential.
