in partnership with educate a child

Building Tomorrow’s five-year, $12 million plan to ensure access to an inclusive, quality education for 50,980 out-of-school children in hard-to-reach communities across Uganda.


Access to inclusive, quality education remains elusive for many across Uganda, particularly in rural areas. The flow of education-related capital, human resources, training and oversight to rural communities is severely limited. For 1,200 parishes identified by Uganda’s Ministry of Education, no formal primary school exists at all. With the World Bank estimating 439,000 children out-of-school and UWEZO recording 85% of rural P3 students in-school as unable to read, write or do basic math at a P2 level, the time for action is now.

Building Tomorrow is proud to partner with Educate a Child for our Educate 51k initiative

Educate a Child (EAC), a program of Education Above All, is a global initiative launched by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of Qatar, which aims to significantly reduce the number of children worldwide who are out of school. In Uganda, the EAC and Building Tomorrow partnership aims to increase enrollment, retention, and completion of primary school for children who are currently out of school. EAC supports Building Tomorrow's work to engage individuals, families, teachers, communities, governments, local partners, and advocacy groups to create powerful education initiatives that are crucial to fighting poverty.
