Jeni Lowry, Founder of GLOW Foundation (Giving Life Opportunities to Women), first met the girls’ school, Daraja Academy, in Kenya September 2015. After her visit, she grew to understand what was happening to a lot of them upon high school graduation. Though their scores were high enough to be admitted to college, for financial reasons, they were unable to attend. She could not sit back and do nothing and watch some of the hardest working girls she had ever seen return home to their villages to seek menial employment in a country with over 35% unemployment.

Upon witnessing Daraja's impact on allowing the girls to attend and graduate high school, Jeni decided to help the girls continue their dreams of furthering their education and careers by attending college. Without Daraja, none of these girls would have been able to even attend High School. And, now, without GLOW Foundation, these girls do not have a chance to attend college.

She would love your help in directly changing the course of these girls' lives and as GLOW Foundation grows, help many others in similar situations throughout the world. Jeni recognizes first hand, that together, we can make a HUGE impact on these young women's lives, their families' lives, and their future generations' lives with financial assistance and mentorship.

GLOW foundation immediately struck a chord inside of me. Hearing the stories of these women, who through hardships, strive to pursue something greater was inspirational. I love that GLOW gives them the opportunity to change the world!
— Brooke Taylor, GLOW Donor
My husband and I continually support GLOW Foundation because of the immediate and impactful opportunity it gives to very deserving young women. There should be more organizations like GLOW that mentor and financially support education in struggling economies such as Kenya. The work Jeni Lowry the founder has done to launch this foundation over the past year has been amazing and inspiring all on its own. She has gotten to know these young women, their hardships, their hopes, and their dreams. It’s remarkable to me that 52 scholarships have been granted for the 2018/2019 school year!
