Teaching and Education

Education in Uganda has registered progress in primary and secondary enrollment over the years; however, the sector still grapples with several inadequacies. Increased education enrollment has not guaranteed educational quality or completion rates. Government funding and policies have not adequately responded to the massification of education in Uganda and its heightened demand. Although education is a human right, it is not easily available and accessible to all.

In the rural and under-resourced communities, education has suffered the most. These areas experience high levels of teacher absenteeism, low teacher morale, school drop outs and poor school infrastructure. Our Teaching and Education Program works with partners on the ground to promote educational quality through boosting teacher morale, teaching, supporting applicable learning interventions, soft skills development and administrative support. Whether you are a licensed teacher or an enthusiastic individual looking to volunteer in a low-income school system, this program is for you.
