Innovating new models to empower victims of war and extreme poverty
Where Others See Destruction, We Rebuild Hope
We incubate survivors of war and violence as the best resource to rebuild broken communities
These survivors are desperate for the right tools to help themselves build healthier, productive lives.
95% of survivors are at risk of starvation
War, hunger, and lack of water are a serious problem in South Kordofan. While the numbers are staggering, we provide solutions.
Over 2,000,000 people count on us
From the Nuba Mountains to Darfur, the Blue Nile, and South Sudan our services are a vital lifeline. Our projects save vulnerable lives.
Addressing War and Extreme Poverty
From our education network and digging wells to our nutrition and sanitation services, we work to empower survivors of war and massacre.
Not Just A Charity, An Empowering Community Transformation
Of the more than a billion people worldwide living in extreme poverty on less than $1.00 a day. In war zones, millions of survivors exist on the margins of society - internally displaced, denied refugee status, shut out of the formal market sector, and left vulnerable to exploitation through child soldier recruitment, rape, and trafficking.
Kara Universal was created in direct response to the needs of the most vulnerable victims of war; mostly women, children, youth, maimed/disabled. We are breaking the cycle of extreme poverty and violence through education and sustainable job creation in the Nuba Mountains, Darfur, Blue Nile, South Sudan, and Refugee Camps and slums in Kenya and Uganda.
The survivors and their families were previously trapped in extreme poverty, war, and slavery. They become empowered through our programs to earn stable, healthy income through sustainable income-generating activities.
Tackling Mass Starvation and Malnutrition
We address hunger and malnutrition head-on by helping small farmers in the war-torn South Kordofan increase production and sell more crops as the best way to combat global hunger and poverty
Digging Wells & Installing Hand Pumps
Due to the lack of drinking water women & children are forced to travel great distances in search of water. Many still lack access to safe water often face obstacles like discrimination and long droughts.
Effective Healthcare Interventions and Immunizations
Poverty and health are strongly linked. Health problems can plunge people into poverty or keep them from escaping it, and those in poverty are more likely to suffer disease because of lack of treatment.
Innovation and Women Empowerment
We are breaking the cycle of oppression as a basis for a peaceful future, built on a hand up, not a handout.
At Kara Universal, we believe that incubating these survivors through education and sustainable job creation is an empowering long-term solution to extreme poverty, war, genocide and other different forms of injustices.
We work directly with families and communities to build a comprehensive, sustainable and dignified long-term strategy towards a better future
