Promoting Equality in African Schools (PEAS)
Promoting Equality in African Schools (PEAS) is a UK-based charity/social enterprise hybrid with an innovative school financing model, Smart Aid, that is sustainably expanding access to quality, low-cost secondary education in Uganda and Zambia. Due to a severe lack of affordable schooling in either of these countries, the vast majority of young people are unable to access secondary education. With a mission ‘to unlock the potential of Africa by delivering equal access to affordable, quality secondary education’, PEAS is addressing this desperate need for quality secondary education provision. The organization has grown rapidly from 2 schools in Uganda in 2008 to 22 schools in Uganda and Zambia in 2012.
