EDUCATION OPENS the doors of opportunity



 

Through the generosity of our child sponsors, donors, and partnerships with various churches, communities, and companies, we are building an educational ecosystem for children who live in rural Uganda.

We strive to develop joyful, compassionate leaders and innovative thinkers.

Through our dedication to providing the highest quality education we have become a regional academic leader, collaborating with other schools and striving for 100% parent/caregiver participation in the education process. We believe in raising the next generation of leaders in order to positively influence community growth and development.

 

Education provides the highest return of any social investment.

The relationship between education and opportunity is clear worldwide. Below are data points specific to Uganda and the Kalungu district that help illustrate the need for academic investment:

  • GDP per capita is $313 USD in the district that we serve.

  • The average life expectancy is between 60 and 65 years.

  • Sixteen percent of students between 6-12 years old are not enrolled in school within the district we operate in.

  • Forty-seven percent of the population is between the ages of 0-14 years.

Raise the Roof Academy recognizes education as a key pillar in social and economic development. We invite you to invest in making a lasting impact by creating a better future for our students and our community.
