Did you know that only 9% of children aged 3 to 5 in Uganda receive an early childhood education?
That’s because the majority of children live in rural communities and are unable to access
early childhood education due to financial constraint or their remote locations. Basic education and literacy is one of Rotary International’s six areas of focus. Education has a powerful and transformative impact on entire communities by reducing poverty, improving health, encouraging economic development, and promoting peace.
IREAD partners with rural communities and local NGOs like Rotary International to make education accessible. The IREAD Field Team identifies villages that need an Early Childhood Development Centre, are willing to donate land and are able to elect a Centre Management Committee (CMC). Here’s what our partnership process looks like:
Without the strong support of people like you who understand the importance of ECD, this work wouldn’t be possible. Thank you for helping to bring positive and lasting change to communities by building a better and stronger tomorrow for Uganda!
