Event description

Description

Join UNA- Chicago for a fun-filled evening at the Columbia Yacht Club supporting Adopt-A-Future. 100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Adopt-A-Future.

Adopt-A-Future is a program launched by UNA-USA and UNHCR to support refugee children and provide them with quality education. This year, UNA Chicago has committed to fundraising for Kakuma Refugee Camp, one of the oldest refugee camps in Kenya. Kenya’s camp Kakuma serves an estimated 190,000 refugees from neighboring countries (by far surpassing its capacity of 100,000 refugees). Within Kakuma — which is only 12 Sq km — there are 19 primary schools funded by UNHCR to serve young refugees, which make up 55 percent of the camp’s population. UNA-Chicago is raising money specifically for the Shabele Primary School in Kakuma Refugee Camp.
