Les and Rob have long finished longboarding across Kenya, but we still hope the legacy of this project will help raise awareness and funds for UBC Sauder Social Entrepreneurship. They have been directly involved in delivering business, entrepreneurship, business planning education and mentorship in Kenya and seen the benefits this can have for youth there.
The purpose of the skate adventure is to raise money to support the development of Sauder Social Entrepreneurship, a non-profit organization using business education to support entrepreneurs in developing countries. We believe that providing consistent and quality education and mentoring support in Kenya will make even more meaningful and positive changes to the lives of these youths and future generations.
Donating in-kind for us to auction, use to teach, buy flights (air miles) or if you are connected in Kenya we can use all kinds of resources, please contact us.
Spreading the word throughout your community, company, network, friends, and family, you give us a chance to promote our cause and maybe one of them will be able to help donate as well.
This has been an epic journey and an amazing experience for all of us who are involved. Rob and Les are adventurous, but not professional longboarder’s in any way. Much like starting a business, you need to go for it, but a strong network will make all the difference. Please support our efforts and those of the Sauder Africa Initiative we support.
