Quality Education For All
“I wanted to bring back a love for academics for students that have forgotten all about school.”
According to the UNESCO report in 2018, one in every five children (ages 6-17) is out of school. Richard Muwonge, an education entrepreneur from Uganda, is committed to changing that statistic. “I wanted to bring back a love for academics for students that have forgotten all about school,” he says. Richard sees how much education has done for his community and the role his school, Buganda College School, plays in the future of his students. But being an entrepreneur anywhere in the world is a challenge. Especially in under-resourced countries, these challenges persist all the more. School proprietors often struggle to find committed and qualified teachers, only offered high-interest loans from financial institutions, and, at times, are unable to own their school buildings.
By choosing to partner with Edify, school proprietors do not have to walk alone. At Edify, we provide three essential resources to education entrepreneurs in under-resourced countries: training, access to loan capital, and education technology. These resources help them sustainably operate, grow, and improve their schools. When their schools run sustainably, more children can learn and escape the clutches of poverty. We believe when students can receive an education in quality schools with Christ at the center, we can see our vision of flourishing godly nations become a reality. “Our vision is huge, and with the help of Edify, we shall make it,” says Hasifa Nabatanzi, school proprietor of Blue Pine School in Uganda. So far this year, in Uganda, Edify has impacted 583,824 students, partnered with over 2,300 schools, and trained 7,451 school leaders and teachers.
