Educate Deserving Poor Children in Uganda!



You can change a life with a donation. In rural Uganda, just 1 in 10 children finish grade school. AAH is changing that. 100% of our students pass national exams with top scores, putting our school in the top 1% of more than 19,000 schools nationwide.. More than half of our primary students and secondary scholarship recipients are girls... Children include orphans, handicapped, and those facing special challenges like albinism. 100 of our students need sponsors in order to remain in school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Families in rural Eastern Uganda struggle to survive and find it more valuable to have their children work in the fields-or their young girls to marry-than attend rundown, over-crowed public schools. When children do attend these schools, they have little hope for real learning. We've demonstrated that these kids can excel when given the right tools. Our model school-and assistance to public schools-have made AAH a beacon of hope for more than 50,000 children in a remote, under-served region.

How will this project solve this problem?

When children are sick or hungry they cannot learn. They can't learn without textbooks and well-trained teachers. They can't learn if they're tending fields. AAH provides free healthcare, a hot lunch everyday, teacher training for AAH (and public school) teachers, and uniforms,books and school supplies so children can learn. We engage parents/guardians to change thinking about the value of education. We cover secondary students' tuition, uniforms, healthcare, books, room/board and travel home.

Potential Long Term Impact

With approximately 50 new primary students enrolling at our school each year, we expect the multiplier effect to have a significant impact in this underserved region. As our 600+ kids complete their education, they can give back to their communities, which motivates many children to learn. Some want to become doctors, others want to teach; as they succeed, others will benefit. By providing jobs and buying locally when possible, we are also helping villages become self-sustaining.
