NDAJEE! Fundraising Gala

WGEP’s primary fundraising event, “NDAJEE!” 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.


NDAJEE 2015 took place on October 5th at Nellcôte. We raised over $115,000 to support our programs in Senegal and Kenya! THANK YOU to all of our donors, supporters & friends who made this possible!
