Hi Friend/Family Member,
I wanted to let you know about an innovative non-profit with a wonderful mission that I support called Educate!. Educate! empowers students across Uganda to drive the social, political and economic development of their communities. They do that by teaching a two-year curriculum on how to lead social change, providing long term mentoring and creating a life-long, national network that equips students with the skills and confidence necessary to transform their communities. Educate! students create locally-grown, market based initiatives that solve the challenges of poverty, disease, and environmental degradation.
Educate! students have built an orphanage, sent over 70 students to school, and started a highly successful community organization with over 200 members. As Educate! empowers its students, they go on to empower many others. They call it exponential empowerment. The work of the Educate! students has already directly impacted over 10,000 people and created tens of thousands of dollars in value for their communities.
Today, Educate! is empowering 415 young leaders at 24 high schools across Uganda. A recent winner of the prestigious Echoing Green fellowship for the highest potential startup social change ventures worldwide, Educate! was also recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as one of 100 Brilliant Companies in 2009, by Do Something as an organization started by one of America’s top 5 changemakers under 25, and by Fast Company magazine.
I urge you to learn more about Educate! through its website (www.experienceeducate.org) and support the organization. Educate! is currently trying to raise $15,000 by July 31st to invest in another class of 415 young leaders in 2010. You can help support this campaign at http://www.experienceeducate.org/empower-more-students.
Thank you for your time. I hope you will join me as a supporter of Educate!.
