About PEAS:

PEAS has one of the largest and fastest-growing secondary school networks in Sub-Saharan Africa. Each year, 15,000+ students learn at 35 PEAS schools in rural communities across Uganda and Zambia. Over 50% are girls. PEAS is known for great schools. Our students come from poorer households, they start further behind, and and get better results.

Drawing on years of practical experience and local expertise, we work hand-in-hand with government, and others, to enable better classroom learning. That way, entire national education systems can deliver better secondary education to everyone.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the education of millions of children. Uganda experienced the world’s longest school closures, lasting almost two years. Zambian schools were closed for more than three months, with first-year secondary school students missing four and a half months.

PEAS supported over 181,000 students in Uganda and Zambia during the school closures through our robust remote educational support.
