This five-year project is helping the public and private sectors in Uganda strengthen their response to social development programs. Working in 20 districts around the country, the project is expanding access to and utilization of quality health and education services. The project identifies strategies for addressing health and education issues locally, with solutions that can be applied nationally. UPHOLD is working through existing groups to help communities mobilize and strengthen their ability to identify and prioritize their own needs. As part of the UPHOLD team, World Education is strengthening community participation in primary education and health. World Education, in partnership with local NGOs, is helping to build the capacity of parent-teacher associations (PTAs) and community health associations through nonformal participatory methods.
