Building Tomorrow envisions a world where every child with a desire to learn has a safe, permanent and local place to do so. Working towards this goal, Building Tomorrow empowers young people to invest their resources, time and talents in providing students in East Africa with access to an education. Since their founding in 2006, thousands of students across the US have raised well over $600,000 dollars for the construction of schools in rural Uganda, have developed a strong connection to their global community and have gained an understanding of the privileges and opportunities they so often take for granted.  According to ‘Engineer Gasana’, a community leader and land donor to Building Tomorrow in Uganda, “If people in America can come to Africa and really help us, why don’t the people who are here also contribute?” To date, their  partner communities have donated 35 acres of land and volunteered over 200,000 hours of labor to build schools for their children.   Together, they have opened ten primary-level academies in Uganda with another five currently under construction and site planning; each providing learning space for up to 325 students. Furthermore, in Uganda, each academy serves as a source of pride and a catalyst for change within the community. They have seen roads built, gardens harvested, scholarships funded, teachers organized, and housing constructed as a direct result of communities being empowered to help themselves. And in 2011, as part of the Clinton Global Initiative, Building Tomorrow made a public commitment to increase access to quality education for thousands of children in East Africa by constructing a total of 60 community-built, stakeholder-sustained academies and developing the teaching capacity of 450 teachers by 2016.
