Gua Africa provides educational programs for those affected by war and displacement in East Africa.
We primarily work in Kenya offering education to refugees who have survived war and genocide. We believe that a holistic approach to education is key, especially in communities where young people have been cut off from mainstream schooling.
As a result, our programs offer academic scholarships to refugees, as well as a range of comprehensive, purpose driven initiatives which promote creative wellbeing and leadership in order to address more sustainable solutions for peace and independence for our young beneficiaries.
Currently our primary activities are focused on our Survivors of War sponsorships in Kenya and our partnerships with My Start and Windle Trust International; who deliver high quality creative art workshops and vocational training programs in Kakuma Refugee Camp, NW Kenya.
Our founder Emmanuel Jal has also recently started an authentic leadership course at Kakuma, guided by his ‘My Life is Art’ practice; designed to cultivate peace, positive mindset and purpose.
You can show your support by becoming a sponsor to our refugees or donating either a one off or regular monthly donation to our programs.
