About Us

Uganda has the highest school dropout rate in East Africa, according to a report released by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). This has been blamed on the failure of parents to provide scholastic materials and other school requirements for their children. Go 2 School Initiative Uganda (G2SU), a team of vibrant and energetic people, intends to address some of these challenges, to enable children be able to have a decent future. This will be achieved by improving the lives of Ugandan children through social support in selected regions for given periods of time.

The target population of G2SU are poor people in rural areas who cannot afford scholastic material, sanitary equipment, have no access to clean and safe water, among other needs.

The funds to finance the activities will be obtained through existing donors, attracting new private and corporate donors and well-wishers.

G2SU is governed by a board of directors, assisted by an executive director and managing director. These work with other staff; programs director, finance and administration director, communications director and volunteers’ director.

“Go 2 School Initiative Uganda has a role to play in the lives of girls. As the mothers of the nation, we give priority to girl education. So many girls have skipped classes in rural areas of Uganda due to lack of sanitary pads. This forces them between 5 – 10 days out of school which distracts their education. For this reason we started handing out reusable sanitary pads to a few girls which has had a positive impact to a few families. With more support to us we are likely to have a substantial positive effect .”
