A Note From Tonya, Executive Director


Thank you for visiting the Women's Learning Center website. The Women's Learning Center has been helping women since 2010. During that time we have had over 425 students. Many have come to know the Lord as their personal Savior and are now in church with their families, some have graduated with their HiSet, some have gone on to college, while others are now working at better jobs. Through the support of friends around the world we are able to provide help and hope without cost to those who cannot afford to further their education or job skill training.


As you browse our site you will see the wonderful things God is doing. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about how you can help, please contact us. On behalf of our women, thank you for your love, care, and support.

Ways to Help


Donation are made through the Louisiana Baptist Children's Home and forwarded to the Women's Learning Center. Your contributions help women enhance their lives, make a difference in the lives of their family members, and give them a future and a hope in an overwhelming world.

The hearts of these women are revealed through the empowerment they receive when they learn the importance they have in the world. Our class Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11, where we learn that God truly has a wonderful plan for each of our lives. Each woman who completes the program is honored at a graduation event. This event truly encompasses the magnitude of your contributions. Your donations change lives, give hope, and change the future of the women enrolled in the Women's Learning Center. We do not receive any state or federal funding.
