Waves of Education is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide quality education to the children of Uganda. In order to do so, over the past three years we have raised enough funds to build a seven room primary school in the village of Galiraya, Uganda. In addition to building the actual school structure, with the money raised thus far we have been able to provide students and teachers with necessary materials as well as resources such as desks, uniforms, books, etc. needed for the school to operate successfully. 

For this year's 5k, we will be using the money raised to go toward funding the operational costs of the school, including repair of the local water pump, constructing a fence to secure the school, additional staff, transportation, and additional school supplies

Please help the children of Galiraya get the quality education they deserve and to reach our fundraising goal of $30,000.

Thank you so much! 

The Waves of Education Team
