We are developing a movement of leaders to address education inequity inside and outside of the education sector, with a common vision of providing every child with an opportunity to attain an excellent education.
We recruit, train and place top university graduates and young professionals in high-need UPE schools across Uganda to serve as full-time teachers committed to transforming the education outcomes of less-privileged children. Through this 2-year fellowship program, participants (fellows) significantly improve the achievements and aspirations of their students, thereby interrupting the cycle of poverty that affects many Ugandans.
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.
