Our Programs

Impacting the society!

Programme implementation was strategically developed as WERK evolved organically from purely conducting research to applying the recommended interventions and remedies emerging from research studies thereby linking research to action, while retaining research as an important precursor to all programming.


WERK’s Secretariat is engaged in the implementation of multi-year education action research projects which address access to education, equity in education, transition and completion strategies, learning outcomes, life skills and mentorship. The projects focus on early childhood education, basic education, girls’ education, gender in education, education in pastoralist & marginalized regions, education for minorities, teacher support & development.
