29.6 million people live in Uganda and nearly 60% if Uganda’s population is under 15 years old. Uganda’s education system has 7.5 million children in Primary School. There are only 13,407 schools and 141,461 teachers within the system. That equates to one (1) teacher for every 52 children. By the time a child reaches Secondary School there are only 960,000 attendees as over 6 million children have dropped out of the education system entirely. The reason for this dramatic decrease is because the cost of Secondary School is double that of Primary School.
