It’s always nice to start off the day hearing news about people doing good in the world, and we just learned that Cara Delevingne participated in a mission trip to Uganda where she spent time with Sudanese refugees. This mission was part of the United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up Campaign, which gave Delevingne the unique opportunity to meet young mothers and school children and learn about their history — as well as their educational needs and plans for the future.

She met girls and young women who face huge obstacles on the road to receiving basic educations — as in not knowing if they’ll have access to school from year to year, and sometimes not even being able to attain a pen to write with.

Develingne shared pictures of her time in Uganda and the girls she met on her Insta feed in an attempt to spread awareness about the challenges they face.

This breaks our heart, but at the same time, it’s an incredibly important reminder that their are concrete ways we can help.

And now, let the dancing begin!

All good things must come to an end…

Thanks for sharing your experiences, Cara, and more importantly, for shining a desperately-needed light on the experiences of these young girls and women. We don’t know about you, but we’ve been majorly inspired to see what we can do to help these girls succeed.
