Help Educate and Empower Women: The Carr Educational Foundation - Daraja Academy
Help Educate and Empower Women: The Carr Educational Foundation - Daraja Academy

UniversalGiving is thrilled to announce our new partnership with The Carr Educational Foundation- Daraja Academy!

Founded by a Bay Area couple, The Carr Educational Foundation works to provide a transformative education to gifted African girls who would otherwise have few opportunities for a better life. The Foundation’s first school, the Daraja Academy in Kenya, offers students not only traditional classes, but also an education in areas such as sustainable gardening, sex education, and women’s empowerment so that, by the time they leave the school, girls have to tools to reach out to their communities and improve their life and their society. On top of all that- the school is the first free school in East Africa offering secondary education to girls!

Help Bring Relief to Victims of Ugandan Violence
Help Bring Relief to Victims of Ugandan Violence

The rising cost of living in Uganda has led people to take to the streets in protest in recent days. Thursday, an intended solidarity “walk to work” day, turned violent as authorities reportedly used disproportionate amounts of force resulting in many of the peaceful protesters being taken to the hospital or to prison. In an attempt to halt the spread of these protests, many opposition political leaders have been arrested, including Kizza Besigye, the runner up in the recent presidential elections. As police continue to assault protesters with beatings, tear gas, rubber bullets, and in some reported instances live ammunition, civilians continue to pour in to local hospitals.

UniversalGiving’s partner Groundwork Opportunities is working tirelessly in Uganda to report the truth on the recent uprising and to provide support to the victims of police violence. GO’s team is currently working directly with the civilian victims of the demonstrations and have made direct contact with a local hospital in Kampala to help these innocent bystanders.
