BT Academy of Kidula
According to 20+ dads working their tails off at the future Academy, their time has 'expired,' so it's time to 'pay it forward.'

supported by UNC-Chapel Hill

DECEMBER 30, 2011 – Just over seven years ago today, the Building Tomorrow story began with a special Christmas in Kampala delivery. Today, seven Building Tomorrow academies are on holiday break, three are getting ready for their first round of students in February, two are now in an active construction phase and as of last week, one will forever be referred to as ‘the best Christmas present ever.’

Joseph and Kenneth, our Country Director and Construction Coordinator respectively, were on hand as the community of Kidula broke ground on Building Tomorrow’s 12th academy, supported by UNC-Chapel Hill, amidst what they described as ‘many, many cheers.’ Joining the Building Tomorrow crew for the festivities was the Commissioner for Secondary Education from the Ministry of Education who pledged to continue deepening the ministry’s ties with Building Tomorrow. When local leaders asked the community to start work on Tuesday, they quickly protested.

Monday sounded better.
