our model

Individuals, groups & BT chapters outreach, advocate & fundraise for the construction of a new primary school.

Working with the government & local leaders, we identify communities in rural Uganda with little or no access to a primary school & a strong commitment to education.

We offer to fund building materials & skilled labor in return for a donation of at least 3 acres of land, 15,000 hours of labor & a community’s promise to support the school long-term.

Local community members form committees to oversee construction and management of the school.

Together, we build a 10-room primary school & separate latrines.

We work with the local government to recruit qualified teachers, register students & furnish each room.

Uganda’s Ministry of Education posts teachers in P1 to P7, while the community funds a nursery teacher, additional resources & programming at their own discretion.

We recruit & train Ugandan college graduates to provide 2 years of capacity building support for head teachers and School Management Committees at each new school (& other public schools, too).

The school becomes a source of pride and acts as a catalyst for change throughout the entire community.

from access to learning: the building tomorrow blueprint

Early in 2013 we embarked on a project to document the evolution of Building Tomorrow’s model since our founding in 2006, and to detail a step-by-step outline of our programs, policies, and overall quality of education strategy moving forward.
