Education & Training

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
  • 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.
