The school is terrific, and I love that the goal is to impact in the whole community (outreach schools, clinics, etc), not just a really good school that 350 kids get to attend. It’s great to know that you really can make a difference.
Uganda’s public school system is desperately underfunded, which leaves students in decrepit school buildings with too few latrines, desks, and classrooms to accommodate them. These crowded schools sometimes have one hundred students in one class with only one, underpaid teacher, who may or may not show up to instruct them.
Building on the success of the AAH primary school model, we have expanded our reach to 26 local primary schools with over 20,000 students. AAH helps to provide teacher training workshops, school lunch program subsidies, secondary scholarships, library assistance programs, and mentorship workshops to many of these impoverished students and schools.
