of Women Leaders

This is What Wedu

Wedu is a leadership development organization that aims to unlock the leadership potential of women in Asia, enabling them to become leaders of their own development and that of their community. We do this by offering mentorship and innovative financing options for a university education.


Investing in Women Leading the Change



Wedu works with global partners to provide selected young Asian women with a transformative Leadership Development Program and innovative financing options for a university education



Young women from developing countries across Asia with strong leadership potential and a vision for social change are selected to become Rising Stars in the program



Rising Stars are matched with a committed mentor and receive lifelong mentorship and access to innovative financing options, such as Future Income Sharing Agreements (FISAs), to complete their university education



Rising Stars develop the leadership skills to realize their personal potential and achieve their goals of social change



Returns are reinvested when Rising Stars pay it forward by mentoring future Rising Stars, becoming talent spotters, and contributing their future income through FISAs
