As the title of thie report suggests, education cannot wait nor should it. But the harsh reality is that it does, often when politics gets in the way, as it has for our Uganda project. RIght now, our in-country partner in Uganda has been running for political office in Iganga district, where our project is located. Winning a parliamentary seat in Iganga has the potential for huge impact. Our partner is as committed to building leadership capacity among both teachers and students as we are, so that they can become advocates for change in their own communities. Quality education cannot be realized unless the barriers to education are also addressed. Although Rachel Magoola has won the primaries, the voting date has been steadily pushed back and indefinitely postponed. That said, we are waiting anxiously to get the ball rolling! We ask for your continued support and we thank you for joining us in this journey to help us realize the power of education in Uganda.
