Within Our World (WOW Founded by Rishi Ram) is a non-profit dedicated to raising responsible citizens and is hungry to see a dream become a reality. By connecting resources with communities from across the world, WOW provides grants to pay for tuition, rent, food, school supplies and books. 100% of donated funds also help cover things like medical care and emergency expenses, transportation or a computer.
No one has ever become poor by giving Anne Frank
Our focus is dedicated to students like Pauline Goe Ningala, an 18-year-old young woman waiting for acceptance to study International Relations at Rongo University in Kisumu Kenya. She lives in Mombasa with her sister, brother and her mum Jackline who works to help pay for her daughters' education. Fatma Chemtai is from Mt Elgon, Kenya, with the dream to study law and help build a better society. Yosef Desale is from rural Ethiopia and has faced obstacles and monumental grief that could have broken his spirit and easily left him without will or hope. WOW is grateful for the donations and the generosity of its sponsors who made possible Yosef's post-secondary education, where he completed his degree in Tourism at Lions Tourism College in Addis Ababa.
WOW also provides emergency medical assistance to program recipients like Belete Meseret. Belete also graduated recently with a BSc degree in Natural Resources Management program at Bahir Dar University in Ethiopia. His dreams are on hold while he recovers from HIV/TB. He is determined to make a difference on his side of the world where life is as dependent on food, water and medicine as it gets. Every moment counts.
