“I am inspired by the power of African youth.”

Boris Bulayev and his organization Educate! are reforming the secondary education in Africa to equip young people with the skills necessary to break the cycle of poverty. Educate! partners with governments in East Africa to integrate this practical skills-based model into the national education system.

For his social engagement Boris Bulayev received one of ten 2018 Klaus J. Jacobs Awards. He is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Educate! He received the award for his efforts to equip youth with key 21st century and employability skills. These skills help youth build confidence, discover their passion, and succeed in the challenging labor market they will face after school.
