Our Projects


Our “Empower Girls in STEM” program gives underrepresented groups, particularly girls and women, a window into STEM careers and builds a network of support and ongoing mentorship for students who are interested in studying and practicing STEM. ANWEP recognizes that female education is a crucial component to poverty alleviation and investing in girls’ education also helps delay early marriage and parenthood. It is ANWEP’s goal to increase the number of women in STEM through our mentorship efforts and our career-focused programs and initiatives.

Fight against domestic violence

Our fundraising efforts enables us to provide temporary shelters for young mothers in Dallas and Denton Counties who are victims of domestic violence. We have opened a channel of communication for women who are battered to reach out for help by organizing workshops and outreach programs to spread awareness on domestic violence and the abuse of women and children in our community. Our counseling services and training are designed to help victims become socially and economically autonomous.


We live in a society that puts women on the back burner and as a result, most women and young girls do not reach their full potential professionally. Our Confident Girl Self Esteem initiative is designed to help our younger generation develop a leadership mindset at a very young age. The ultimate aim of this association is to encourage and train significant numbers of women for informed leadership positions that will ultimately promote a progressive development agenda. This we can accomplish through our leadership and entrepreneurial conferences.
