Our Vision

One School at a Time works to boost the performance, quality and sustainability of rural, impoverished schools in Uganda. We promote a community-driven approach that engages the school community, school board, teachers and students. This approach empowers schools to identify their own needs and to successfully develop and implement their own five-year plan. We focus on long-term solutions that improve the lives of motivated communities, and we use practical technologies that can be maintained locally and are easy to sustain. We are passionate about our programs to empower girls to stay in school – educated girls can break the cycle of poverty for both their families and communities.

Go to the people. Learn from them… Start with what they know. Build with what they have. …when the job is done, the people will all say we have done it ourselves. – Lao Tzu
