2016:

We launched the Educate! Exchange program in Rwanda.

The Educate! Experience expanded to Northern Uganda, a post-conflict region.

We are now reaching over 14,000 youth intensively in Uganda and 240,000 youth more broadly through our direct delivery and education reforms in Uganda and Rwanda.

 


2014:

We set the ambitious goal of working in 200 schools in 2014 and exceeded it, growing to 238 schools. That’s more than 4x growth from 2013!

We received the results from our randomized controlled trial, the gold standard of impact evaluation. We learned amongst many other things, that 94% of Graduates owned a business, had a job, or attended university.



2012:

The Ugandan curriculum that we advised on was officially rolled out through the Ministry of Education, reaching more than 50,000 youth annually.
