Jumpstart! Uganda: Programme Update

Posted on by Elaine Miller

A huge thank you to all our generous donors who have made jumpstart! possible, here’s an update of what we’ve achieved so far.

Education: We are working with 10 nursery schools and over 7,000 children in the rural Nwoya District of Northern Uganda to improve the quality of education available.

Jumpstart! focuses on Early Childhood Development (ECD), cost- benefit rations of ECD investments reveal average returns of around 4-5 times the investment amount.  The programme has various aspects detailed below:

Teacher Training: We have trained 26 nursery teachers and an amazing 433 primary teachers in ECD.  We have also trained 10 nursery teachers to become qualified caregivers.

Playgrounds: We have built nursery playgrounds at 4 schools, and have secured funding from The Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation for additional playgrounds.  These bright and colourful playgrounds are unique in the area – so as well as allowing children to play in a safe, stimulating environment they have attracted lots of interest from the local community!

Speed Schools: In March we launched our accelerated learning programme for children that had missed out on a lot of school.  In just 10 months, we aim to take 750 children through the curriculum they have missed during the first three years of primary school.  We have already trained 30 facilitators who are underway teaching 724 out of 750 pupils.

Thanks for reading, if you want to discuss any of our projects, or projects we are currently looking to fund please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Team AR.

You can still enter through the public ballot and be part of Team AR, but don’t worry if you are unsuccessful as we have 8 guaranteed places.


Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts at 06:00 in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.

More information about the race can be found on the Prudential website here.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to complete this incredible 100 mile race (and do some fundraising for African revival in the process) get in touch:
