Back in the classroom – with your help

As part of our catch-up education programme in Uganda, with our partner network CRANE, we asked for your help last summer in providing starter packs for 1,000 girls returning to mainstream school.

Thanks to you, they certainly looked the part and had all the essential kit as they went back to the classroom after six months in our Creative Learning Centres (CLCs).

In the last four years, 2,242 girls went back to school.

  • 173 CLC graduates were children with learning difficulties.
  • 66% of graduates went on to primary, 16%to secondary and 18% to vocational education.
  • 180 girls have registered for national exams in 2017, compared to 100 from the last three years.
  • 21 girls completed their O-Levels.
  • The only A-Level candidate attained 11 points, enabling her to enrol in any university in the country.

“It was encouraging to see such commitment to inclusive education in Uganda. We hope that your work will go from strength to strength in supporting marginalised children in their education. The visit was extremely informative and we took away some valuable considerations for our inquiry into our work on education.” Stephen Twigg MP, Chair of the British Government’s International Development Committee


This four-year programme was supported by a grant from the British Government’s Department for International Development.
