Our projects increase girls’ access to education throughout their childhood and adolescence, boosting their chances of a stable, healthy future for themselves and their family, and reducing the likelihood of them falling into life-long poverty and inequality

Why focus on education?

  • Only 40% of girls in Uganda attend primary school, and only 15% complete secondary education
  • Girls who are educated have better economic prospects, fewer and healthier children who are themselves more likely to attend school and are better equipped to make informed choices about their lives
  • Including and enhancing the number of girls who are educated also contributes to higher economic growth and sustainability for the whole country

Kathy's Kindergarten

Since February 2018 Kathy’s Kindergarten has provided early education for Mayuge’s children. With up to 60 children in attendance at any one time, the Kindergarten uses a play-based approach to early-years education, combining direct teaching with opportunities for children to explore, learn and consolidate their discoveries through play.


Delivering the Ugandan Early Childhood Development curriculum, local teachers provide a strong focus on communication, language and social interaction, offering a unique experience shown to be effective in helping develop and support young children. 


Every additional year a child can spend in education is beneficial to her future economic and social prospects: Kathy’s Kindergarten offers its children the chance to grow, develop and engage during their more formative years.
