Application for the event is already open so don't miss your chance to fulfill one of the biggest sporting challenges of your life in an unforgettable location as you get to raise some money for Build Africa's fantastic work in rural communities of Uganda and Kenya.

To reduce poverty, Education is a powerful tool, Build Africa involves African Parents and communities in the construction of permanent structures, school management as well as encouraging and supporting income generating activities and savings in Kenya and Uganda.

Pupils in rural communities study under trees, inside makeshift structures,sitting on bare soil, wet or dry (sunshine or rain), struggle to copy work to their books while kneeling (no desks), walk long distances to school and study on an empty stomach making learning is a hustle.

Support Build Africa in working out solutions with communities, building of permanent strictures, provision of desks, textbooks, teacher trainings and so much more...GO marathon or START donating and contributing to these activities.

Build Africa works exclusively in rural areas of Uganda and Kenya. Combining learning and earning opportunities which offer children and their families long-term solutions to poverty. The vision is for every young person in Africa to fulfill their potential and to make a difference to their community.
