Pangea Educational Development
Pangea Educational Development (PED) is a U.S. registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering schools and unifying communities through sustainable education. Founded in 2011, PED partners with schools in Uganda through three phases to jointly identify problems, map and implement sustainable projects, and equip them with the tools to manage their programs in the future.
By focusing on three clear phases of building both financial self-reliance and increased depth of education, Pangea develops schools in Uganda through the work of international volunteers and local staff on the ground.

2. Sustainability– Focused on Financial Independence or Income Generating (ex. Water Tank, Chicken Coop, etc)financial (income generating-chicken coop/piggery/internet cafe).
3. Professional Development– Focused on Hands On Training and Education of Teachers and Introduction of Innovative Teaching Methods or Technology

Projects We Support
The GoAbroad Foundation partnered with PED in 2014 to raise funds a Water Pump Project at one of Pangea’s partner schools in Uganda, St. James Primary School. The project installed a new Water Pump so the school could continue generating income and educating local children. The pump has also allowed the community at large to have much more consistent access to clean water too!
In early 2017, the GoAbroad Foundation began planning and fundraising to Build a Library for St. James School in late 2017. By October 2017, we even had the chance to visit St. James School for ourselves!
We are fundraising to support Pangea Educational Development in November 2018 at our very first fundraising gala in Chicago, Illinois. Read more about the project we are raising funds for, find out how you can get involved, or donate today!
Note: All donations* made through the GoAbroad Foundation for Pangea Educational Development will be donated in full to Pangea Educational Development. We do not take any portion of donations for our partners.
