THE ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME MODEL

After 14 years, Colorado-based One School at a Time now partners with six Ugandan schools serving over 2,500 students. We empower students to stay in school and break the cycle of poverty. Our unique model invites entire communities of parents, teachers, and Board members to come together and:

  • Identify their own needs and develop and implement a five-year plan
  • Join our team to secure water, sanitation, menstrual pads for older girls, community gardens, school lunch, classrooms, and teacher training in nonviolent communication
  • Help first-generation girls avoid early marriage and pregnancy
