The Last Lap of 2022

Meet the Learners

Mathew is a Primary 6 student from Central Uganda. As campus prefect, his job is to ensure the school grounds are well taken care of by his peers. His favorite subject is mathematics because his math teacher always makes himself available when Mathew needs him. His favorite Roots to Rise numeracy activity is adding using sticks and bundles. When he grows up, Mathew dreams of supporting his family so they never have to worry about basic daily tasks again!

With your help, we are working to ensure communities across Uganda are equipped to provide every child within their care—children like Mathew, Tendo, and Tonny—with the chance to master the literacy and numeracy skills they need to thrive for a lifetime. Our Roots to Rise program is delivered by Fellows, Community Education Volunteers, and teachers, and designed to offer remedial and child-specific support for struggling learners both in school and in the community. Since January 2022, we have reached an incredible 100,000 children with Roots to Rise programming, and better yet, more than 75% of learners completing lessons are able to read a paragraph, compared to 19% at baseline. We have also enrolled more than 30,000 children in school in 2022 and are eager to complete the last lap of the year and reach even greater milestones in 2023.

Support the right to learn every month of the year!

You can maximize the impact of your one-time or annual gift by making it monthly. A $100 donation is deeply generous, impactful, and appreciated, but a $10 monthly gift turns into $120 by the end of the year, and $20 can change the course of a child’s life. Become a monthly donor in this Last Lap of 2022, and impact a life forever!
