Did you know that majority of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa live in rural communities? And did you know that between 40-50% of the 496 million children in Sub-Saharan Africa live below the Poverty line? Amidst these extreme struggles education still costs 1/3 of the majority of household incomes, leaving most families unable to afford the cost of their children’s education. Hence, over 33.8 million children in Subsaharan Africa are out of School.

Through the #EducateAchild Program, we currently provide education opportunities for over 100 children – covering their school tuition, school uniforms, meals, and books. We would like to invite you to consider partnering with us by becoming a child sponsor – helping turn the lights on for the many rural children we serve in Nebbi District.

Promoting STEM Education

Students and teachers in Ugandan rural communities often lack access to resources and opportunities that can improve their achievement and representation.

In an increasingly globalized, tech-focused world, the need for STEM education is profound.

But it is in world’s rural communities that the need is most acute. STEM learning in rural world has the power to restore and revitalize failing communities. It has the power to open up a world of opportunity to people and places too long denied access to it. And it has the power to give voice to the voiceless, to bring our forgotten villages, towns and communities to the attention of the whole wide world.

Both the knowledge and the technologies

STEM provides

 is giving our most marginalized communities in Nebbi (Uganda) a global voice. It is equipping those who for too long have been deprived of a voice with the tools to spread their stories from one corner of the globe to another.
