Our Model

Teach For Uganda is a movement of leaders working to expand educational opportunity to all children in Uganda.


We recruit outstanding recent graduates and professionals from varied disciplines with strong academic backgrounds, leadership experience and skills.


Fellows undergo a rigorous selection process where we assess them on key competencies required for them to be eligible for the fellowship.


Successful fellows start their fellowship journey with an initial 6 week intensive residential training in pedagogy and leadership.


Teach For Uganda places fellows in rural, low income government aided primary schools as full time teaching staff for 2 years.

Our Partners & Supporters

We are deeply grateful to our early stage partners and supporters with whom this vision is possible.
