The Lasallian Women of Hope program is a compassionate outreach to females attending Lasallian schools around the globe. Through the program’s grants, women and girls are empowered to overcome small challenges which would otherwise impede their continuing education.
The mission of Lasallian Women of Hope (LWH) is to ensure girls and women enjoy full access to Lasallian education. Beginning as a small project providing grassroots female empowerment, LWH provides sustainable solutions to mitigate obstacles impeding educational access. Through its grants, LWH delivers creative, effective, and durable solutions to educational inequities for girls and women.

The Establishment of Health and Menstrual Education Center in India
A global campaign to promote Sustainable Development Goal #6
For the 2022-2023 academic year, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #6, Clean Water and Sanitation, will be highlighted by the RELAN – the Lasallian Region of North America. We are excited to participate in this educational initiative of the Secretariat for Solidarity and Development in Rome. Lasallian Women of Hope will support this initiative by assisting with a water project at San Isidor school in El Chaco, Paraguay. Students accessing a Lasallian education at this school are impacted by water shortages which cut the school year short. Lasallian Women of Hope will raise funds toward providing clean water and sanitation to this residential school which enrolls 350 children.
Lasallian Women of Hope started with a Kenya Project
Lasallian Women of Hope’s initial grassroots program began at Mwagnaza College in 2016 with “The Pad Project,” which provided Menstrual Hygiene Management and personal hygiene products so female students could attend school uninterruptedly.
Through its international council, the program is extending its small-grants assistance to females around the globe. Each program can be funded for up to three years as LWH encourages the development of sustainability in each program/project.
