Thank You for the Support!

We are so grateful to the more than 230 donors who responded to our year-end appeal to benefit college and career programming for the women and girls we serve at Mercy Education Project. 

We welcome many new donors into the MEP Circle of Support and appreciate the continuing support of many others of you who came through with such compassion and commitment to our mission. Because of dear friends like you, disadvantaged women and girls are able to gain the skills and support needed to achieve their educational dreams and goals.

As we look towards 2016, MEP aims to grow our programs to better meet the needs of the girls, women and families we serve.  By ramping up our Future Pathways programming for both women and girls, MEP will continue to address many of the obstacles that often inhibit low-income minority women and girls from thriving economically.

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
