Educate!’s 3rd Annual Hike for Africa. The event celebrates the powerful connection between Educate!’s U.S. supporters and its Ugandan students. Participants in Boulder and Kampala, Uganda will trek to the top of a peak, symbolizing the common goal of empowering the next generation of socially responsible leaders. The money raised will go directly to support education programs in Africa and empower Educate!’s 1,400 students in Uganda to transform their communities.
