WEDS is dedicated to promoting women's empowerment. WEDS has organized over 150 "Self-Help-Groups" to make this possible. These self-help groups collaborate to provide job training opportunities and support for working women.
These self-help organizations also work to educate their members about financial responsibility so that they can develop long-term financial habits. These self-help groups also work to provide similar job training opportunities for groups of young women.
Those who have been identified by self-help groups are given the opportunity to receive specialized training at the WEDS tailoring center. These young women are encouraged to enter the workforce after completing their training. WEDS has used the well-respected craft of tailoring to help many women build and/or reform their lives.
WEDS educates the general public and schools about the benefits of trees and how to properly care for them in both the rural and urban environments.
