The disheartening Uganda

Although Uganda counts more than 60 years of independence, it remains practically unchanged. Meaningful opportunities are for a handful few relative to the population and this has been the case since independence. While the scarcity of meaningful opportunities was not felt in the initial years of independence, mainly because few people had formal education then, it became increasingly felt over time, primarily as jobs/opportunities going to particular ethnic group(s). The scarcity of jobs/opportunities has worsened and manifests itself variously as rising unemployment/underemployment, as desperate search for greener pastures,  as increasing conflicts over land, as rapid degradation of the environment, and so on. This trend is moreover unlikely to improve, at least not in the foreseeable future, placing the future of our children/grandchildren at a real risk.

The Cause

Don’t just blame the leaders; the real cause is much bigger than them, namely non-conformity to the natural law out of underdevelopment. Moving society out of poverty and underdevelopment does not just happen; there is a natural law that controls the process. Uganda’s non-conformity to this law reveals the missing link in the country’s development efforts. Until this missing pillar is established, chances of Uganda moving out of underdevelopment will remain non-existent, regardless of what the policy makers say or do. To argue to the contrary is to let Uganda lose also its second chance to develop, i.e. the period 2012-2062, an outcome with serious negative implications on our children/grandchildren.

Call to Action

Join us in gifting your children/grandchildren a brighter Uganda, by laying a brick on the foundation for the missing pillar for the country’s development. We spent over 10 years developing materials (the education tools) for this foundation. The support sought is for universal access to and effective use of these education tools in more than 80% of the secondary schools and tertiary institutions in Uganda.

The education tools

The missing pillar for Uganda’s development will be systematically established as the learner climbs through lower secondary to tertiary education as follows:

1. After this story nurtures the right thinking for science-led development in learners of senior 1-3, these online education tools promote growth of this specific thinking in the learners by guiding them into coming up with science-based solutions to numerous local challenges.

2. After this story nurtures the right thinking that enables the learner to recognise and choose his/her appropriate career, but which also enables the country to envision and firmly stay on the correct path out of poverty and underdevelopment, these online education tools promote the growth of this thinking in the learners by guiding them in transforming local challenges into opportunities for jobs’ creation or wealth generation.

3. After this story  nurtures the right thinking for knowledge-led development in learners of high school, these online education tools promote growth of this thinking in the learners by inspiring them into becoming active participants for expanding Uganda’s economy in the knowledge-based era, the 21st century.

4. After this story nurtures the right thinking for inclusive growth in learners of tertiary institutions, these online education tools (i) recruit them into expanding Uganda’s economy (ii) inspire them into succeeding as business persons/manufacturers/industrialists in Uganda’s business environment (iii) motivate them into acquisition of skills  (iv) promote capacity development in Uganda
