Our mission at Circle of Peace International is to:
Advance schools in Uganda that provide quality education to disadvantaged children
Raise awareness globally of the value of children's education in Africa to create lasting change for future generations
We envision a world where all children can pursue quality education that enables them to achieve their dreams.
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.
