Summary

Help teach math and critical thinking skills to disadvantaged children at the Future Victory School in Uganda by building a Learning Landscape as developed by Project H Design. This innovative playground design is constructed of recycled materials.

Challenge

Public education in Uganda extends only until the equivalent of 8th grade and resources are stretched thin. Opportunities for orphaned children are rare. Future Victory School was established in the year 2000 as a response to an avalanche of orphans created by AIDS and the Civil War in Uganda. Currently, there are 458 students (283 are girls) enrolled, the majority of which are orphans, 10 are HIV+, and 4 are disabled.

Solution

The building of the Learning Landscape will provide a new type of learning tool to this part of Uganda: one that combines teaching, critical thinking, motor skills, participative attitude, teamwork and physical exercise.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help teach 458 disadvantaged children to build critical thinking and leadership skills, which, when combined with education, will give these children an key advantage as they compete for higher education opportunities.
