WHAT THEY DO


Across Africa millions of young people finish school – and yet they find themselves unemployed or earning less than $2 per day.

Educate! is an ambitious initiative aiming to transform education in Africa by delivering a skills-based model of education comprised of entrepreneurship, leadership and workforce readiness training for 16-20 year-old youth. The programme enables the students to create small businesses so they can significantly improve their livelihoods – earning double the income of their peers after graduation.

In 2016 Educate! is directly reaching almost 16,000 students in 398 schools in Uganda. In addition, Educate! has partnered with the Ugandan and Rwandan governments to bring about education and curriculum reform at the national level.


OUR SUPPORT


We are managing a grant made by our sister non-profit Hampshire Foundation – this is unrestricted funding to support Educate! during their growth.
