what we do


Raise the Roof Academy students are living proof that education opens doors out of poverty, child labor, disease, and chaos. Our students come from families who often live on less than $1 a day. We provide a free, high-quality education to girls and boys born in the most remote communities of Uganda who, due to poverty and social pressures, would otherwise be cut off from the promise of education. 



We are building an educational system that includes a Nursery School, Primary School, Secondary School, and Vocational Training.


For prolonged success, we focus on providing local leaders with the tools necessary to continue the mission.


The school clinic is open to all students throughout the entire year, and each student is seen by a dentist twice a year.
