About Circle of Peace International

Who We Are

Circle of Peace International promotes access to formal education, greater social understanding and cultural exchange through outreach, and relationship building between Americans and Ugandans.

What We Do

Circle of Peace International supports Circle of Peace School in Makindye, Uganda. There, nearly 300 boys and girls from preschool through grade six receive the education that they would otherwise be denied because they are unable to pay required public school fees.

In Uganda, only 20% of boys and 17% of girls are educated past the seventh grade.  Primary education is free, but students must fees to cover the cost of books, uniforms and supplies. Those who cannot pay may not attend school.

Many Ugandan families cannot afford school fees. About 90% of Ugandan children live without electricity or running water, and more than 50% of Uganda survives on just $2 a day.
