Sustainable education

We believe in a world where all children enjoy an education that unlocks their full potential

 

An hours’ drive from the bustling city centre, to the West of Kampala, is Uganda’s Mityana district. Despite its proximity to the capital, rates of poverty in the district are high and sources of electricity and water are limited for Mityana residents. However, an exciting new solar panel project being implemented by COINS Foundation and PEAS Pioneer High School is set change the lives of the students at the school, but also the community at large.

We probably all have our own ideas around the value of education, but what does it mean to our students? Today we have an article written by one of our Senior 4 students from Kithoma school, who provides a meaningful account about why education is important to the individual learners but also for society as a whole. Happy reading!

Bridges to Africa Walk for PEAS

We are very excited to annouce that Bridges to Africa will take place on Sunday 14th June 2015!

Earlier this month PEAS was very proud to present 'An Education', our annual fundraising event where celebrities and PEAS' guests are put through their paces by PEAS patron Jeremy Paxman in a University Challenge style quiz. 

At PEAS we're proud that 50% our students are girls - traditionally a vastly under represented group in education within sub-Saharan Africa. Educating girls isn't just a critical part of ensuring social justice, it also makes economic sense on an individual and macro level. 

Get involved with PEAS. Find out about PEAS fundraising events, donate to PEAS, read about our fundraisers and see all vacancies at PEAS.
