Helping provide a pathway out of poverty through education
Providing life-changing education
This project is dedicated to supporting children in the remote Mpigi district of Uganda, ensuring access to an education, quality teachers and resources, and a pathway out of poverty.
In Uganda only 27% of school-age children are enrolled in school.
Instead of starting their first day of school, most young children in Uganda would be heading to work – most likely in fields, herding animals or digging for food. You can change the future of hundreds of children living in poverty by ensuring they are enrolled and attending a quality, local school in their remote village.
Without an investment in education, and no funding for schools and teachers – many children will be left behind and may never see the inside of a classroom.
This project tackles the education crisis on two fronts:
- Providing schools and education for children in remote Uganda
- Supporting teachers with resources, training and accommodation
By providing children in Uganda with the opportunity to receive a quality education, this project offers an empowered future - securing better jobs, earning sustainable incomes and breaking free from the poverty cycle.

To support life-changing education in Uganda, we choose to partner with School For Life. Founded in 2008 by influential young Australians Annabelle Chauncy (OAM) and David Everett (OAM) after they were moved by the abject poverty they saw in rural Uganda. School For Life now educates 1,700 students across three campuses, two primary and one high school providing all staff and students with three nutritious meals a day, healthcare and access to clean and safe water.
