Home > About GEPAN

The Guyana Empowered Peoples Action Network (GEPAN) is a non-profit, secular, organisation geared towards empowering vulnerable segments of the rural and hinterland Guyanese population that are afflicted by poverty, in particular women and children.

Founded by Anna Correia, the organisation was born from a vision that seeks to create as its name suggests, a network of people united with a common purpose of uplifting rural populations.

Our work includes documenting socioeconomic issues affecting rural communities, building capacity and giving back to those who need it the most. Special efforts are directed towards the social and economic empowerment of women who remain one of the most vulnerable groups in Guyana, as well as supporting education of young children.
