Education is an important instrument to achieve development, i.e. reducing poverty and stimulating economic growth. Statistics show that more than 450,000 children are out of school in rural areas in Uganda and yet universal basic education is a critical part of rural development. Most rural families can not afford the direct cost of schooling nor the opportunity cost of having their children away for many hours of the day in low-quality schools.
Under our Education program, we intend to solve this problem through school construction and teacher training, child sponsorship to already established schools, and provision of scholarship and material support.
