Around 89 million youth, ages 12-24 years, are out of school in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In the next decade, an estimated 40 million more youth will drop out and face an uncertain future without adequate work and life skills (World Bank, 2015). In Uganda, our programs aim at Retention of at-risk children and youth in school, and Remediation of out-of-school youth through alternative education pathways.
