How we are making a difference

Working with 100 primary schools in Buliisa, Kikuube and Hoima, as well as policy makers and stakeholders at national level, we are undertaking:

  • Finance management training for community members to monitor school spend of their government grant
  • School management training
  • Advocacy training for community members
  • Sharing best practice from grassroots to ministry level
  • Strengthening local government school support

These activities are designed to help school managers and community members enhance learning in their classrooms. Increased awareness surrounding education policies and rights, alongside advocacy training will enable leaders to demand the resources they need.

At a national level, there will be increased accountability leading to improved schools and children getting the very best education in their local area.
