Mulago Foundation donations made to PEAS

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

350,000.0012015--https://mulagofoundation.org/Portfolio/peas-- Donation date is not a single date but rather when funding began. Rainer fellow in 2015. Mulago’s reasons for investing: “In poor countries, a secondary school education can vastly increase lifetime earnings, yet fewer than 25% of kids get to go. For those who do make it, the quality of education is often bad: Teacher are absent, curriculum outdated, and classrooms overcrowded. PEAS builds and operates low-cost secondary schools in very underserved parts of Uganda and Zambia. Their network of schools gets poor kids into school and dramatically improves quality. PEAS wants to create a charter school movement to transform secondary school education across the continent. Their systems for school management can help turn the commitment and resources of African governments into a great secondary education for all.”.
