> Partner Schools
Fields of Dreams Uganda partners with ten schools in the Central and Northern regions of Uganda. Our partner schools are carefully selected based on need, school leadership, community engagement and support for our mission. Each school we work with is uniquely wonderful, but all are overcrowded and stretched to capacity with limited resources.
Our day-to-day work with the students and faculty at these schools is also supplemented with annual grants to address school-specific challenges.
These grants have been used to repair roofs and entire classroom blocks, install electricity, construct new dormitories and to pilot a feeding program; the latter being of significant importance as the majority of the children we serve are malnourished.
We are fortunate to work with the receptive staff and the incredible students at these schools.
