Share the party or Run for Africa
Do you know, that you can improve education in Africa by mere jogging? If you work at elementary or high school, you can involve your students in Run for Africa project. The students themselves must find sponsors and then the rule is following - the more rounds they finish, the more help would go to Africa.
