Your support at any level will help WGEP in our mission to fight global poverty by educating girls.
WGEP’s primary fundraising event, “NDAJEE! Getting Together for Girls’ Education,” is held annually in Chicago each fall. NDAJEE! is a fun and inspiring event that celebrates the impact of education and empowerment for girls and supports WGEP’s work in Senegal and Kenya.
Join us for this fun and inspiring event, and support education for girls! Past NDAJEE galas have featured inspiring guest speakers, African music and dance, a silent auction of local and international items, and the modern seasonal creations of North Pond Executive Chef Bruce Sherman, winner of the 2012 James Beard Best Chef-Great Lakes award.
There are many ways to volunteer at WGEP—plan your own “mini-fundraiser” at your home, business or place of worship; join one of our volunteer committees for development, our annual fundraiser, etc.; or volunteer at NDAJEE!, our fundraising gala.
WGEP offers unpaid internship opportunities to undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students in the Chicago area who want to learn more about nonprofit management, the issues of global poverty and girls’ education, and the Chicago global development community.
Tell your friends and family about WGEP and the importance of girls’ education and empowerment!
