What does Urban-Eco Fundraising go toward? 

Current Project: Africa Trip 2017

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 on a journey traveling from Rwanda to Kenya during the summer of 2017. Once in Africa the students will volunteer at local schools and undergo a journey to learn about the Maasai culture,  ecology of Kenya, Mountain Gorilla Conservation and the history of Rwanda's people. 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.

Our 2014 Urban-Eco Student Fellows! These 7 students went to Kenya! All of the students worked diligently to raise money for their airfare over to Africa. They were eager for the opportunity to work with the children at Ole Keene Primary School in Kenya and to meet the baby elephant, Kamok, they have recently adopted from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust! Visit our events page for more information on Kamok.
