Build A School for Kids in Uganda

What does your Education Cost?

What does an education cost?

Building Tomorrow launched a new online tool this year enabling anyone that went to school in the US to calculate the cost of their elementary education. All you need to do is enter the year you were born and the state where you went to school.

My 1st through 7th grade education cost $56,077. Building Tomorrow can provide a child in Uganda with an P1-P7 education for $350. That difference is outstanding. And for just $10 I can help Building Tomorrow build another classroom.

I'd like to invite you to calculate the cost of your education here and share your results with friends and family.
