Beneficiary Organization Partner

Pangea Educational Development (PED) is a U.S. registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering schools, teachers, and communities through sustainable education and community building. Founded in 2011, PED has focused on partnering with schools in Uganda through a three phase model that jointly identifies problems, maps and implements sustainable projects, and equips schools with the tools to manage their programs in the future. More recently, PED has expanded their programming to serve the educational needs of larger communities, including offering educational opportunities in refugee camps.

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.

We’re excited to continue supporting a new PED project in 2020, so stay tuned for updates!
