PED Uganda staff was thrilled to welcome our Program Director, Okiror Nathan, to the team. Since assuming his role in May, Nathan has been visiting our partner schools throughout Uganda to monitor PED projects and the impact they have had on the school community. He has worked alongside school leaders to collect relevant data, including school enrollment numbers and accessibility to learning resources, that will help PED continue developing its strategic plan for the upcoming years. Nathan believes in the value of education and its impact in local Ugandan communities, which is evident as he discusses why he wanted to join PED:
With a strong mind and an even bigger heart, Nathan is helping PED strengthen our understanding of education in Uganda and the challenges schools are facing. We look forward to our continued growth with his help and guidance.
