Why we do what we do
Abato Foundation Uganda is a children community organization established in 2011 to improve the livelihoods of children and youth in Uganda through through education and nurturing their talents and abilities. “Abato” means children in luganda, the largest spoken local language.
The foundation was started by young people with a vision to raise a generation of changemakers who will lead in the transformation of our society.
Why we do what we do
We believe that every child irrespective of their social background has an inherent ability deposited in them which when tapped can help them not only realize their potential but also add to the transformation of our society. It is in the desire to provide equal access to quality education and its associated benefits that Abato was established.
A good quality education is the foundation of success for many individuals in Uganda, yet a quality education still remains an exclusive of the rich and the middle class. It is this inequality that we seek to address through provision of low cost, good quality education.
