It was a unlikely friendship with an orphaned refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo that inspired Eric Glustrom to do something about the sad state of education in Uganda. All Benson Olivier wanted was an education to help solve the challenges faced by the refugees of Kyangwali and the people of Congo. At 19, Eric made Bensonís dream come true by paying for Benson to go to school, and thus Educate! began with the goal of empowering the next generation of Ugandan leaders.
