This August, S.O.U.L. Foundation held a successful Student Sponsorship Breakfast in Denver, Colorado! This event gave Denver-based student sponsors the opportunity to video chat with their students and learn more about S.O.U.L.'s education initiatives. It's an amazing thing when sponsors are able to connect with their students and share their stories!
Thank you so much to the sponsors, students, volunteers, the Posner Center for International Development, and all of the other S.O.U.L. champions who came out to support our work!
Additionally, S.O.U.L. was proud to launch a successful Back to School Uganda campaign that facilitated awareness about our student sponsorship program and helped S.O.U.L. ambassadors around the world better understand how to support our work. Within this campaign, we held a backpack drive that has helped prepare over 30 young students to be back in school this fall.
Because of the wonderful responses, we are extending our backpack drive through the end of September. Send a backpack to a deserving S.O.U.L. student today, and we'll send you an awesome patch to thank you! We are so happy to welcome our students back to school with the support of our network around the world.
