Teach For Uganda
- Central Region
At Teach For Uganda (TFU), we believe that every child in Uganda regardless of their socio-economic background deserves an opportunity of an excellent education. Our mission is to build a movement of diverse and capable leaders who will work to end education inequity in our country. We recruit, train and place top university graduates and young professionals in high need primary schools across Uganda to serve as full-time teachers committed to transforming the education outcomes of less-privileged children through significantly improving their achievements and aspirations in a 2-year teaching fellowship.
Through the highly selective, highly rigorous Fellowship, participants (Fellows) develop critical knowledge and first-hand understanding of the education system in Uganda and the challenges it faces. With intensive training and support from TFU, Fellows help transform the lives of their students while enhancing their own leadership skills. As Alumni of the program (and, over time, their students) will become the next generation of Ugandan leaders in education, business, non-profits, medicine, law, government, journalism and other fields. Informed by their experience, they will work from inside and outside the education system to affect the fundamental changes necessary to ensure quality and equitable education for all children.
Teach For Uganda's inaugural class of 26 fellows will be placed in 13 government-aided primary schools in Luwero district in 2018 and will impact the lives of 2600 children. Teach For Uganda won the 2017 Varkey Foundation Challenge Fund. Our vision
