GLOBAL LEADERS PRIMARY SCHOOL

FOCUS AREA: EDUCATION

Growing up in one of the most remote villages in Northern Uganda, many children in Namasale will become trapped in a cycle of generational poverty due to lack of quality primary education in their district. Because of this, Amolatar District remains one of the poorest performing educational districts in all of Uganda. Without opportunities to achieve academic success, children from this community have been continually and unfairly marginalized. That’s why we partnered with community members in Namasale to build Global Leaders Day & Boarding Primary School.


FAF SCHOOL OUTREACH 

FOCUS AREA: EDUCATION

Public schools in the Namasale area tend to be overcrowded, underfunded and lacking the adequate sanitation, housing, teacher training and educational resources that are essential to healthy child development. Working closely alongside the Administration, Teachers & Parents we are currently engaging with several other primary & secondary schools in the Namasale with the aim of raising the standard for education for all children in the sub-county.

Through our School Outreach Program we have been able to:

  • Provide Mentorship workshops with students at Namasale SEED Secondary School which has resulted in a decrease in absenteeism among girl students
  • Provided sanitary pads & training to girls at our partner schools
  • Host an annual Friendship Football Match and provide soccer balls to our partner schools thanks to Charity Ball 
  • Provide free Teacher Training workshops to 15 teachers at our partner schools

OPERATION: TEACH 

FOCUS AREA: EDUCATION

The OperationTEACH initiative is first and foremost an invitation; we want you to join us in making our first school a success by providing fair wages to the local teachers that will staff our school through our sponsorship program. 

As a sponsor of a teacher and their classroom, you’re providing not only a livable wage for a teacher across the world, but an excellent education to Ugandan students as well.
