Far Away Friends exists to empower rural communities to end generational poverty through education & opportunity.
Far Away Friends sees education as a starting point for investing in the economic and social development of a community. Our philosphy is that regardless of a child’s place of origin, they deserve the tools to grow into conscientious global leaders. We aim to partner with schools in rural communities whose educational resources for children and adults are absent or in need of advancement.
We believe that by connecting people who grew up on opposite sides of the globe, they can better understand cultural differences and break down stereotypes by making a new friend. Making these connections, we are able to gain a stronger cultural/social awareness of the world outside of our country of origin. Our hope is that these friendships become partnerships in international development and inspire more acts of global citizenship.

Educating girls can break the cycle of poverty in just one generation. Around the world, local leaders have culturally-relevant ideas to improve learning and retention particularly for girls, but often don't have access to needed funding and support. Social entrepreneurs need multi-disciplinary support, including how to tell their stories of impact.
We're combining our experience in funding and improving quality education programs with Girl Rising's storytelling and mass media expertise to fund promising ideas to create change on the ground. Our new venture philanthropy fund, Girl Rising-Global Education (GR-GEF), invests in social entrepreneurs with culturally-relevant ideas. Our grantees are promoting gender equality and improving education quality for girls and boys living in poverty in Kenya and India.

Our foundational belief is that education and enterprise are intertwined. Program success and sustainability cannot be found without the other. For 19 years Into Your Hands-Africa has been working with students, families and communities in rural midwestern Uganda, supporting community empowerment and economic sustainability through education and enterprise development. We send students to school, create local model leaders and teach practical skills intertwined with sustainable enterprise projects as requested by the communities we serve.
The idea of Into Your Hands Africa first began in 1999 through a relationship with St. Denis Secondary School in Makondo Uganda. The organization’s founding members kicked-off a fundraising project that supported the building an examination hall, thereby making St. Denis a nationally accredited secondary school. In 2007, IYHA became a formalized nonprofit organization and today the organization has reached over 30,000 people across 70 villages. When education and enterprise are combined at the request of local communities, legacy leaders arise and lead from inside their communities.
