Eric Glustrom founded Educate! in 2002 after meeting several refugees in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement, Uganda, of his same age (then 17) who did not have the means to pay for their education. Realizing that an education was the only way for these refugees to solve the challenges facing Kyangwali, Eric founded Educate! soon after he returned home. He graduated from Fairview High School in Boulder, Colorado, in 2003, and from Amherst College in 2007.
