Mission Statement

Building Tomorrow envisions a world where every child with a desire to learn has a safe, permanent and local place to do so. Working towards this goal, Building Tomorrow empowers young people to invest their resources, time and talents in providing students in East Africa with access to an education.

Description

Building Tomorrow helps provide resources that empower communities in Sub-Saharan Africa to construct schools, thereby increasing access to education. Working with the local government, we identify communities in rural Uganda with little or no access to a primary school & a strong commitment to their children’s education.

We issue a challenge grant to the community, covering the cost of construction materials and skilled labor in return for their promise to donate 3 acres of land & volunteer approximately 20,000 hours of unskilled labor.Together, we build a ten-room academy with seven classrooms, an office, a library, meeting space, toilets and a field for play.

Each academy opens as a public, government school, with Uganda’s Ministry of Education funding teachers & operating costs.
