Only one in five of Uganda’s primary school teachers meets the minimum standards of proficiency in numeracy, literacy and pedagogy, and about two out of four teachers are absent from class daily. Among those present in school in 2015, 56% were not in the classroom during scheduled teaching hours, and 84% of teachers in Uganda report wanting to quit their job..
School enrollment is rising, but literacy remains below 50% among youth in Uganda. Quality education is the key to open future opportunities of the young children; often the poor children cannot afford the costs of such education.
Just counting numbers in enrollment won't tell us how much children are learning, many face barriers to quality education due to poverty, gender and ethnicity
Teachers are critical to attaining quality education. A well trained, motivated teacher is able to support their learners to be inspired about the content and keen to explore their potential. We provide teacher professional development trainings in modern pedagogy, classroom instruction and innovative methods of teaching
As a result, our children are subject to;
Accessible Content: Ensuring that every child can access the content is key to an inclusive classroom where children can learn.
Active learning: When teaching is interactive and children are encouraged to participate they are more engaged and able to build critical thinking skills.
Regular Assessment: Enables teachers to tailor work to the individuals in their classrooms, intervening to tackle misconceptions and keeping children on track.
Safe environment: Positive behavior management techniques prevent the disruption of learning and ensure learners enjoy lessons without fear of violence.
Every child has a right to quality education, regardless of the context they are born into.
Quality education benefits individuals, families and societies
