As part of empowering women’s aims KMEWO is funded by the Big Lottery Reaching Community Fund to provide educational courses to women who cannot otherwise access mainstream education due to barriers including;
- Language and/or cultural barriers
- Domestic violence
- Lack of opportunities
- Lack of information
- Family / childcare responsibilities
- Immigration issues
Classes are delivered at venues where women and girls meet for social, cultural or religious reasons.

On completion of study with KMEWO there is an opportunity to move on to a more advanced level of study. KMEWO can refer clients to Hillcroft College (a women only college) or other London-based colleges to study towards GCSEs and potentially progress on to university.
Anyone joining the programme will also have the opportunity to gain work experience either within KMEWO or elsewhere, enabling them to gain experience and to enter employment.
