We believe in the power of education.

We empower people to invest their time, talents and resources in support of facilitating the construction of community-built, locally sustained primary schools and building the human capacity and leadership skills of teachers and school management teams.

We’re Building Tomorrows
Building Tomorrow envisions a world where every child with a desire to learn has access to a safe, permanent, quality and local place to do so. That’s why our team focuses on providing access to education in hard-to-reach rural areas, and providing support to improve the quality of education in Building Tomorrow schools and hundreds of other government schools in need of intervention.
Access
31 Million.

That's the number of children in Sub-Saharan Africa who wake up every single day without a school to attend.

Building Tomorrow works with the local community to construct a 10 room primary schoolhouse that is easily accessible to children in surrounding villages. As of October 2016, our team, in partnership with communities in Uganda, has commenced or completed construction of 50 primary schools.

Quality
Only 21% of students in Uganda complete a full cycle of primary school and 85% of rural P3 students are unable to read, write, or do basic math at a P2 level.

Building Tomorrow trains and deploys recent Ugandan college graduates, Building Tomorrow Fellows, as community education workers to schools throughout rural Uganda. To date, Fellows have enrolled nearly 6,000 previously out-of-school children and vastly improved the quality of education in the schools they serve.

Educate51K
In 2014, in partnership with Educate a Child, Building Tomorrow launched Educate51k, our five-year plan to provide a safe, local, permanent, quality and supportive learning environment for 50,980 out-of-school children in hard-to-reach communities across Uganda. Educate51k unites Building Tomorrow’s two key programmatic focuses: access and quality, and leverages the support of a network of partners: the Ugandan Ministry of Education and Sports, more than 300 rural villages across Uganda, and an international community of donors.

Uneducate Yourself

Would you be “you,”
without a school?

To Uneducate Yourself is to meet a new you. A side of you that knows what it’s like to wake up in the morning and not have a school to go to. A side of you that doesn’t exist – because it hasn’t had to.
