Why we invest

In poor countries, a secondary school education can vastly increase lifetime earnings, yet fewer than 25% of kids get to go. For those who do make it, the quality of education is often bad: Teacher are absent, curriculum outdated, and classrooms overcrowded. PEAS builds and operates low-cost secondary schools in very underserved parts of Uganda and Zambia. Their network of schools gets poor kids into school and dramatically improves quality. PEAS wants to create a charter school movement to transform secondary school education across the continent. Their systems for school management can help turn the commitment and resources of African governments into a great secondary education for all.
