Where does Urban-Eco fundraising go to? 

To change how students experience learning and break out of the four-walls of traditional education. All fundraising efforts of Urban-Eco, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is sending urban students to Kenya during the summer of 2014. Once in Africa the students will volunteer at a local school and undergo a journey to learn about the Maasai culture and ecology of Kenya. Their journey will consist of studying conservation efforts that promote economic sustainability for the Maasai culture and communities surrounding the Maasai Mara. This experience will develop the students and teachers as scientists and global citizens.
