Our educational project support is aimed at achieving SDG 4 Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Improving quality of learning and performance in schools is our main goal.

WAF promotes early childhood development (ECD) and education in communities by supporting community preschools and other ECD service providers for inclusive education for all and bringing vulnerable children with assistive devices. WAF trains indents to develop teachers teaching skills and learning materials, enabling them to provide and expand their reach and improve quality services. Preschools and ECD services are linked with other service providers within community to facilitate collaboration and faster referrals for vulnerable children and families. WAF conducts efforts to raise parents’ and guardians’ awareness about the benefits of ECD. Increased awareness leads to greater demand for ECD and strengthens the community’s sense of ownership around educating young children.

We all must create a world that brings peace and prosperity to all people, as well as our shared planet, we need to make some changes. This means addressing the global challenges we face collectively such as poverty and inequality, climate change and environmental degradation, conflict and injustice.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a global blueprint through which governments, businesses, civil society and the general public can work together to tackle these challenges and achieve a better, more sustainable future. It recognises that each goal is interconnected, and that action in one area will affect outcomes in others.

Quality education is a particularly powerful goal, and is not only an integral part of sustainable development, but a key enabler for it. From ending poverty and food insecurity to cleaning up our industries and curbing global warming, the skills and knowledge our children gain now will play a vital role in how quickly, and how successfully, we reach a fairer, more sustainable world for all.  

These circumstances and opportunities of early childhood (0-5 years) are crucial in determining lifelong outcomes. Young children’s needs – and corresponding rights – include those related to health, nutrition, intellectual development, and protection from neglect and abuse. Many parents and caregivers do not recognize the importance of maternal health and early childhood care, and are poorly prepared for the demands of parenthood and child rearing. In much of Uganda, ante- and post-natal services are inadequate in both quantity and quality.

Quality education for all:

  • equals access to affordable technical, vocational and higher education
  • enables people to obtain decent work and higher incomes, helping lift millions out of poverty 
  • increases the number of people with relevant skills for financial success
  • enables girls and women to enter the job market, empowering them socially and economically
  • creates a diverse and skilled workforce that can respond to local and global challenges, boosting innovation, local jobs and economic growth 
  • improves people’s health, boosting nutrition and vaccination rates while lowering rates of child and maternal mortality, and HIV
  • creates industrious innovative environment and investment that helps mitigate local impacts of climate change and stimulate green jobs and sustainable and inclusive growth.
