As part of empowering women’s aims KMEWO is funded by Big Lottery to provide educational courses to women who cannot otherwise access mainstream education because of barriers such as;
- 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.
