Education & Training

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
  • Racism
  • Lack of opportunities
  • Lack of information
  • Family / childcare responsibilities
  • Poverty
  • Immigration issues

Classes are delivered at venues where women and girls meet for social, cultural or religious reasons.

Volunteer opportunities

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.
