Cara ‘10 x 20’ Fundraising Appeal

CARA (the Council for At-Risk Academics) works to assist academics facing persecution. Cara’s support makes it possible for them to connect, during their period of exile, with colleagues within the wider academic and scientific communities, facilitating collaboration, enhancing skills and ending isolation, so that, when the moment comes, they are equipped to go back and help re-build their societies.

Applications for CARA's help are at record levels, and so they have launched their 10 x 20 campaign in an effort to meet this demand.
