RLA is a primary and secondary school in Northern Uganda with 500 students.
Seeing a generation of kids who needed an education and a sense of community, we decided to start a school in Northern Uganda to help as we could. What started as a handful of students and a one-room school-house is now Restore Leadership Academy, a boarding school with almost 500 students and 35 teachers.
RLA is a boarding school and provides a family-like setting for many children who need consistency and love. RLA provides education for these children at reduced rates through scholarships by our sponsorship program, Engage. Click to read more!
Launch is a program we've developed as a way to support our students after they graduate from Restore Leadership Academy.
We are so excited to see where their lives take them and we want to support them along the way.
Although very inexpensive compared to a college degree in the States, $700 each year is out of reach for most students, especially when they still need to pay for living expenses.

Uganda Safe Houses
We have two safe houses in the capital of Uganda for underage, sexually abused and exploited girls.
We provide the girls with a home, health care, therapy and counseling, in addition to helping them get back in school and paying their school fees.
Engage is a sponsorship program for the children at Restore Leadership Academy.
We pair the students up with friends in the States or around the world who want to help out financially and be a friend to the kids for encouragement and support.
For just $30 dollars a month you can help one of our students get a fantastic education!

One of our most misunderstood projects is our witch doctor school.
We are teaching traditional healers and witch doctors how to read and write, to help them learn skills that will allow them to switch to other jobs and stop practicing healing. Typically, they are both feared and respected in their communities, isolating them from the rest. Most have never had any education, and don't know how to read or write, so it's hard for them to find jobs. Unfortunately, many cases of child sacrifice happen with the help of witch doctors, so our goals is to teach them other skills and also, make sure they know the laws against trafficking or sacrificing children.
We've already seen the witch doctors make awesome progress and they are even starting to report crimes!
