Building Tomorrow envisions a world where every child with a desire to learn has a safe, permanent, local and quality place to do so. Building Tomorrow catalyzes communities and individuals in support of access to quality education for students in East Africa. We do this by empowering young people to invest their time, talents and resources in support of new educational opportunities; facilitating the construction of community-built, locally-sustained primary schools; and building the human capacity and leadership of locally-based school management teams.
Started in 2006, Building
Tomorrow currently works with a network of over 20 collegiate chapters and a
wide range of institutional and individual funders to support the investment in
access to quality education throughout rural Uganda. With a full-time staff of 45

ground on it’s 50th school, and is looking to expand to other
sub-Saharan countries. Building Tomorrow Fellows are expanding their reach to
160 schools in 2017, and are increasingly focused on capacity building for
teachers as well as school construction.
