Our Mission

WONDER's mission is to empower vulnerable communities worldwide through education.

We work with partner projects that primarily support women and act as a stimulus for ending poverty in their families and communities.

Get Involved

WONDER relies on our donors and volunteers so that we can capacity build our partners and support vulnerable people to exit poverty.

Could you donate or fundraise to change lives? Or perhaps you would like to lend your skills and experience through volunteering with us or one of our partners, either in the UK or overseas?

Our Causes

We work with locally-rooted projects both in the UK and in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe. Local projects best understand the needs of the communities that they serve and are able to co-produce sustainable routes out of poverty for vulnerable people. More

We focus our work on education projects for women and their families that help them to improve their health and to be empowered. We share information between projects and with influencers on the key issues that they identify.
