The
Build-a-School Challenge
Our schools are the heart and soul of our work. Fundraise the cost to build a school, and we'll send you on an all-expense-paid trip to Uganda to see your impact.
Get Started
WHAT
It's simple: raise $30,000 to fund a school in Uganda and we'll send you there to see our work firsthand.
WHY
Through our unique model, you can help build schools that will make a lasting impact in rural East African communities.
HOW
We'll be with you every step of the way providing personal fundraising support and motivation.
Raise $30,000 to build a school, and go on the trip of a lifetime.
  • You fundraise $30,000 by December 2017 to fund construction of a new Building Tomorrow primary school.
  • We pair you with a community in Uganda who will build and manage the school for their community: it will be your school as much as it is theirs.
  • We send you on a trip to Uganda with Building Tomorrow staff to see our work and witness your impact.

Building Tomorrow envisions a world where every child with a desire to learn has a safe, permanent, and local place to do so. To achieve this vision, we partner with communities to facilitate the construction of community-built, locally-sustained primary schools; and to build the human capacity and leadership of locally-based school management teams. By participating in the challenge, you will become a part of the Building Tomorrow and Ugandan community that is creating lasting change. Check out our model to learn more.

Building a school may seem like a tough task, but we have the experience to help you out.
You will be assigned a dedicated Building Tomorrow staff member to help you complete the challenge. We'll help you set up your personalized fundraising page and check in with you often to share personalized fundraising ideas, help organize your efforts, answer any questions, provide encouragement, and pass along information about the community you're building for as you get closer to fully funding your school. We'll treat you like a member of the team...because you are!
