The Edwin Cohen Community Steward Award Recipient, 2014
Founder of Building Tomorrow
George Srour 2007 Fellow
Create and nurture one-to-one partnerships between US-based colleges and communities in sub-Saharan Africa that will generate funds to build new schools and support strong educators in the partner African communities.
George Srour developed the idea that evolved into Building Tomorrow as a student at The College of William and Mary. In just six weeks, he helped raise $45,000 to construct a three-story school in Kampala, Uganda, which now serves 350 children. George, a 2005 college graduate, credits his experience working for the United Nations World Food Programme for inspiring him to launch Building Tomorrow.
