Annual Report 2018

While no new school construction was undertaken in 2018, a lot of ground work has been done to commence and complete construction of 6 new ECD Centres in 2019 including the one featured in this project. Selection of deserving communities that meet IREAD's criteria and the establishment of village - based centre management committees has been completed for 4 new centres in Uganda and 2 in Pakistan all slated to open in 2019.

  • Repaired and refurbished the Shershall Centre in Northern Pakistan that was severely damaged by an avalanche last winter.
  • Renovated the first Uganda Centre established in 2015 in Kitatya, Uganda
  • Increased total enrollment in our existing 6 Uganda centres to over 1000 children.
  • Elected a new Board of Directors and updated our goverannce structure and Artcles of Association

  • Donations received were disbursed toward the provison of school uniforms, lunches and bursaries to deserving children.
