Educate Foundation Incorporated and emPOWER Campaign Help Children in Uganda
(2008-06-16)
(WOUB) - A basic access to education.

It's as simple as that for Educate Foundation Incorporated.

The non-profit group is headquartered in Athens but its mission is global, targeting distressed or vulnerable regions of the world.

One of Educate's projects is in Uganda where orphans often don't attend school because there's no money.

Executive Director Andria Sherrow saw the problem when she was there and decided to do something about it.

Brandon Croke helps Sherrow with the Uganda project, which sells jewelry from the African country to pay for schooling for the orphan kids.

In addition to the emPOWER Campaign, the Educate Foundation publishes Southeast Ohio.
