Thriving Schools Program

In Uganda, only 35% of children who enroll will complete primary school and 85% of rural Grade 3 students are unable to read, write, or do basic math at a Grade 2 level.

We deploy Building Tomorrow Fellows to develop thriving schools that are accessible by all children and committed to producing positive student outcomes.
