Mercy Education Project (MEP) is a female-centric space dedicated to personal growth and stability, where quality education, access to resources, encouragement, and empowerment are the vehicles for their future success. MEP believes every woman and girl has the right to boundless opportunities and resources necessary to be educated no matter their backgrounds, beliefs, or socio-economic situation.

I volunteered with the adult program for about a year and found it to be an amazing organization that is really helping the community. The staff/organizers were really grateful to their volunteers and just really kind people who want to make a difference.
