An effective teacher means students will receive a quality education. The Kikulu Foundation launched a teacher development initiative, in partnership with ConnecTeach and a teacher training college in rural Uganda, in the spring of 2016. This is a multi-year initiative that will have the opportunity to impact hundreds of teachers and thousands of students throughout Uganda.
With our shared interest in teacher development and quality education for children in the developing world, we are excited to partner and collaborate for the benefit of students and teachers in Uganda and we hope you will join us.

Why Support Teachers?
250 million children of primary school age lack basic reading, writing and math skills. Research shows that teachers who receive the training, support and resources they need see higher test scores amongst their students as well as a higher percentage of students transitioning from primary school to secondary school.
