Eliza Dushku and former Celtic Rick Fox, who've been spotted as a twosome over the past few months, left this morning for Uganda. The duo is on a trip organized by Dushku's mom, Judith, a government professor at Suffolk University. The Dushkus, Fox, and students in the elder Dushku's class about human trafficking in Uganda will spend 15 days touring the country and meeting with humanitarians and former soldiers. Judith told us her daughter is more than ready for the trip. "I took her to the Soviet Union before she was 12," Judith said. "I sent her to China when she was 14. I sent her to South Africa when she was 20. . . . She's quite comfortable traveling around the world." Judith said Eliza and Rick share a Boston connection - and an acting coach. They've both worked with Boston University's Peter Kelley, who has also trained Dane Cook. Also on the trip is Alicia Winn, executive director of the Boston Initiative to Advance Human Rights, and documentary maker Libby Spears, who will be filming the trip.
