Mission
Empower local communities to educate the children of Uganda, one child, one school, one community at a time to inspire hope, increase opportunity, and realize dreams.

Vision
Inspire Ugandan children to reach their full potential as productive community members and future leaders through excellent, community-based education.

Guiding Principles

Our fuel is our passion for the children of Uganda and for the vital role of education.

Our light is integrity—being responsible to those we serve, our partners, customers, each other.

People are best supported and educated when their individual choices and local cultures are respected without judgment.

We take joy in pursuit of our mission. We celebrate engaging all challenges and take pride in our success.

We embrace creativity and welcome diversity, new paradigms, and creating consistent positive energy through synergy—a win/win for everyone.

We encourage empathy and selflessness in recognizing that we are all connected…what happens to one child in Uganda happens to all of us. We are one world.
