Building schools doesn't just give children access to the educational curriculum, it also teaches them some of the basics of life, life skills and even life-saving knowledge.

If you compare the life of a child in Uganda that has had access to a secondary education against that of a child who has not the differences are startling.

The following facts speak for themselves:

In Uganda, a child with a high school education is...

- 3 times less likely to contract HIV/AIDS*

- Going to have children twice as likely to live beyond the age of 5*

- 59% less likely to have a child before the age of 17*


- Going to earn 17% more income for every year of high school education**

- 67% more likely to get a job**
