Programs

Building Tomorrow supports the development of school-centric communities in East Africa through both the construction of community-built and locally-sustained primary schools and the training and supporting of locally-based school management teams. Specifically: + Young people outreach, advocate and fundraise on behalf of students in Uganda and their right to an education; ultimately raising money for a new primary school. + Working with the local government, we identify communities in rural Uganda with little or no access to a primary school & a strong commitment to their children's education. + We issue a challenge grant to the community, covering the cost of construction materials and skilled labor in return for their promise to donate 3 acres of land & volunteer approximately 15,000 hours of unskilled labor. + Community members and local leaders form organizing committees - largely comprised of women - to oversee construction and, ultimately, management of the school. + Together, we build a ten-room school with seven classrooms, an office, a library, meeting space, toilets and a field for play. + Each school opens as a community-supported, government-aided primary school; with the government funding teachers for grades P1 to P7 and the community funding a nursery class. + Students, families and communities in Uganda receive a safe, local & permanent school to call their own. Since 2007, Building Tomorrow has constructed 15 primary schools in rural Uganda, with seven (as of June 2014) additional schools under active construction and site planning; each providing classroom space for up to 315 students.
