President Clinton is Building Tomorrow

Building Tomorrow Founder & Uganda Country Director, George Srour and Joseph Kaliisa, with President & Chelsea Clinton at the Building Tomorrow Academy of Gita on Friday, July 20

On his first trip to Uganda since 1998, President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea made a 90 minute stop at the Building Tomorrow Academy of Gita on Friday, July 20, visiting teachers and students in classrooms, watching dances by the school choir and greeting hundreds of community members gathered at the academy.

“It is good to be back in Uganda,” President Clinton said while addressing the crowd. “…we are supporting Uganda’s progress and helping young boys and girls to live their dreams.”

The Clintons, accompanied by a traveling delegation, visited several of the academy’s classrooms, dropping in on students learning about everything from varying types of soils to adverbs and adjectives.

“Your teachers here are so good, I didn’t even want to leave the classroom,” President Clinton said.

This was absolutely incredible, for Building Tomorrow, for Uganda, for Gita, ... for all of us. But we have much more work to do, and hopefully President Clinton's endorsement helps us take a big step forward.

We hope you can help us take a big step forward, too.
