No one has ever become poor by giving - Anne Frank
Our focus is dedicated to students like Fatma Chemtai, a 17-year-old from Mt. Elgon, Kenya, attending her high school education in Nairobi. Her dream is to study law and help build a better society. Pauline Ningala, also from Kenya lives with her Mum, who travels from her Wongonyi village to Mombasa for work to help pay for her daughters' education. Yosef Desale is from rural Ethiopia and has faced obstacles and grief that could have easily left him without hope. WOW is grateful for the donations and the continued generosity of their sponsors who make possible Yosef's post secondary education, completed at Lions Tourism College, as well as provide 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.

Within Our World (WOW) 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 has seen four boys from Ethiopia, including Yosef, become outstanding young men. By providing grants to pay for tuition, rent, food, school supplies and books, grants also help cover things like medical care and emergency expenses, transportation or a computer.
