PED’s Mission

Pangea Educational Development aims to bring communities together by providing them with education solutions that can sustain community members well into the future. At the same time, they offer teachers the opportunity to volunteer in Uganda and exponentially improve the training and teaching methods of local teachers.

Our Partnership History

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.

In early 2017, the GoAbroad Foundation began planning and fundraising to Build a Library for St. James School. By October 2017, the GoAbroad Foundation founder and director traveled to Uganda to visit St. James School and witnesses the opening of the library.

Pangea Educational Development officially joined our Give Together Program in late 2019, and our newest project fundraiser launched in December 2019.
