World of Letters (WoL)
The World of Letters (WoL) was founded in 2006 as a social enterprise with the driving force to work towards equity for a just world realized by bridging the education, economic and opportunity divide in the Arab region. WoL assists governments and organizations in improving the quality of their education system through innovative, contextualize and multi-disciplinary curricula in the Arabic language as well as in training programs. WoL empowers youth to maximize achievements by providing work-ethics training and demand-driven job-placement programs. They work with local communities and relevant stakeholders to overcome gender-imbalances in the economy by promoting mind-setting change through campaigns that influence policies and communities. WoL fosters dignity, pride and equity among youth in the Arab world. They were selected, by the Kahlil Gibran Chair for Values & Peace at the University of Maryland, to be one of three sub-awardees to implement the Women as Partners in Progress (WPP) project.
