Our Work   

What We Do

We are nurturing leaders who are committed to advancing equitable access to quality education in low-income communities. with a common vision of providing every child with an opportunity to attain an equitable quality education. We recruit, train, and place top university graduates and young professionals in high-need government-aided primary schools across Uganda to serve as full-time teachers committed to transforming the education outcomes of less-privileged children.

What we do

Take Action

The education sector in Uganda is constrained by many challenges. These include a high level of teacher and student absenteeism, weak school level management structures, inadequate availability of learning materials, and large class sizes. A major issue is also the availability of teachers in disadvantaged areas and a lack of accommodation for teachers in rural, hard to reach areas.


While this is the case, 72% of children in public schools in P3-7 can’t read and comprehend a P 2 level story and 45% can’t do P2 level math.


Enrolment in public primary schools is at 80.3% compared to 19.6% in private schools.


To make matters worse, 65% of children who enroll in primary school drop out before completion.

Did you know that around two million children in Uganda live in poverty, and most of them do not have access to quality education as do their higher-income counterparts? Is it any wonder that only 30% of grade 3-7 lower-income students have reading and math comprehension at a grade 2 level?
