Making a donation through your company will make a direct impact on the lives of refugees across East Africa.
Does your company have a Charity of the Year scheme? If it does, you could nominate Gua Africa. If it does not, you could set one up!
As your chosen Charity of the Year we will provide video messages from our founder Emmanuel Jal as well as our student beneficiaries. For ideas on what you could to do fundraise check out our resources here.
As part of our Survivors of War project we are inviting businesses to sponsor a student to achieve the education they need to become fully qualified.
For example a law firm could finance a Gua Africa student to complete their law degree, or a pharmaceutical company could support a medical student. For more information please visit the Survivors of War project page or to see which students are currently in need of support click here.
In 2011 the SDL Foundation, created through the SDL Corporate Social Responsibility Policy, generously supported the start-up costs of our 'Survivors of War' Teacher Training Programme which saw five refugees from South Sudan receive a degree in Secondary Level Teaching from a highly reputable private college in Nairobi.
In 2014 all five of those students graduated and three went off to the Kakuma Refugee Camp in northern Kenya to teach young refugees. Again, this would not have been possible without the SDL Foundation's support of which we are hugely thankful.
Their grants truly have made a life-changing difference to those five students. That is not to mention all the children of the schools in Kakuma Refugee Camp where the teachers are teaching who are receiving a much higher quality education than they were a year ago.
