Working together for a quality education in Uganda! 

The Wakiso district is located in the central part of Uganda. It is the most populous district in the country, with over 2 million people. Our goal in this area is that its children are educated and grow up healthily, learning how to become adults who in the future can contribute to the improvement of their family's well-being and the development of their society.

Education is the biggest challenge this country faces!

13% of school-age children don’t go to school and the quality of education is extremely low, as shown by the country’s literacy rates: 2/3 of children are unable to recognise more than a single word at the end of the second grade, and only 3% are able to read a simple story in primary school.

With our contribution, Save the Children will build housing for 4 teachers, ensuring their presence at school and offering a concrete response to the problem of absenteeism: solutions with a direct impact on the quality of children’s education.

This is the way we will guarantee continuity and quality of education to 100 children!
