Building Tomorrow’s five-year, $12 million plan to provide a safe, local, permanent, quality & supportive learning environment for 50,980 out-of-school children in hard-to-reach communities across Uganda.
Access to quality education remains elusive for many across Uganda, particularly in rural areas. The flow of education-related capital, human resources, training and oversight to rural communities is severely limited. For 1,200 parishes identified by Uganda’s Ministry of Education, no formal primary school exists at all. With the World Bank estimating 439,000 children out-of-school and UWEZO recording 85% of rural P3 students in-school as unable to read, write or do basic math at a P2 level, the time for action is now.
