RLA is a Nursery, primary and secondary school in Northern Uganda.
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 school with hundreds of incredible students.
RLA provides education at reduced rates through scholarships, made possible by our sponsorship program, Engage.
Launch is a program that supports our students after they graduate from Restore Leadership Academy.
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 or 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.
One of our most unique 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, 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 and sacrificing children.
