Since 1989, Sister Schools' mission has been to teach compassion, service, and social responsibility to children and young adults. In our dual-impact program, we connect students in Seattle-Area elementary schools with students in Ugandan primary schools. Through supply drives, joint projects, and travel opportunities, children on both sides experience philanthropy that is both global and personal, learning that they are always capable of changing lives.
