A few days ago I wrote about the African village that banned domestic violence and serves as a refuge for women and girls. There’s an NYU event coming up featuring the matriarch of the village, and some people who aren’t able to make it were wondering how they can help out. MADRE, a fantastic organization in and of itself, sends the info:
There are a few ways people can contribute to Rebecca’s work in Umoja. To make a tax-deductible contribution, you can donate online at www.madre.org/umoja, or send a check made payable to MADRE—with “Umoja” in the memo line—to:
121 W. 27th St. # 301
New York, NY 10001
MADRE also collects and sends school supplies to Umoja’s primary school through out Helping Hands program (http://www.madre.org/programs/ha/helphands.html). We are currently collecting supplies to send with our next delegation in January.
And, finally, MADRE leads delegations to Kenya once or twice a year. The delegations are a great opportunity to meet MADRE’s partners in Umoja, and learn about their work. Please visit our Voyages with a Vision page, http://www.madre.org/travel/voyages.html.
