While the world is committed to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promotion of lifelong learning opportunities, Uganda still struggles to realize this target with few children being able to realize their full potential. Like the late Nelson Mandela remarked that “education is the great engine for personal development” we strongly believe that educating the girl and boy child is the master key to breaking the poverty cycle facing communities. Formal education fuels economic growth, promotes health seeking behaviors, reduces child marriages, lowers maternal and child death, reduces the spread of diseases and crime.
Our Education interventions aim at ensuring that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary, secondary and tertiary education.
PAWOA is committed to ensuring equal access for female and male children to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education. We believe that this will substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment and entrepreneurship. We also aim at strengthening education institutions through construction and stocking of libraries, distribution of computers, desks, career guidance and teacher capacity building.
We work to contribute to solving the world’s critical challenges facing women, children and adolescents through fighting poverty, promotion of quality and equitable education, health systems strengthening, early childhood development, youth social-economic empowerment and research.
