Supporting head teachers as change-makers & strengthening the human capacity of hard-to-reach schools across Uganda
Building Tomorrow works in very rural, hard-to-reach communities, where teachers are often isolated, without easy access to a network of peers and professional development. Where School Management Committees are ill-equipped to effectively carry out their responsibilities. Where local government officers are severely limited in their time and resources to monitor progress. And, perhaps most importantly, where parents often see little value in investing in a system that is failing their children.
In short, the BT Fellows Program aims to catalyze systemic change across Uganda’s public education system by strengthen the school leadership to transform the failing public schools. The program engages Uganda’s youth in developing holistic and long-term solutions to systemic issues plaguing their country. Throughout the process, these young people go on their own transformational journey to realize their true potential and commit to the development of communities in their own way.
