THE EDUCATION CHALLENGE

Uganda's Education Challenge Many children receive low quality or no education, and are unprepared to be Uganda’s future leaders. For decades in Uganda, families’ economic backgrounds have determined their children’s educational outcomes and prospects in life. Uganda’s poor children are 7 times more likely to drop out before completing primary school than their wealthier counterparts.


Our 67 fellows are already working full-time in 25 UPE schools in Luweero and Mayuge districts, and are impacting the learning and life outcomes of over 20,000 students. We are looking to grow to 500 fellows impacting over 250,000 students over the next 5 years, with the plan that 60% of alumni will continue to work to expand opportunities for children and/or to improve the quality of life in under-served communities.
