Teach For Uganda (TFU) is a locally-rooted and globally informed leadership development organization that is fully registered since 2016 as a non-profit organization in Uganda. We leverage the power and knowledge of promising future leaders to ensure that one day, all children in Uganda attain an excellent education, enabling them to thrive in constantly changing economies. Through our 2-year Fellowship, we recruit and train Uganda’s top university graduates and young professionals from all academic backgrounds into full-time teacher-leaders and place them in high-need rural and underserved government schools to drastically improve the learning and life outcomes of children in far-flung communities."
