There are many deficiencies in education systems around the globe. In Uganda, for example, it is common for students to be in classrooms with 100+ students. Teachers are paid very little so they often take up 2-3 jobs and are unable to help students on a personal level. Teacher turnover is high, so students will often see a few different teachers in a school year.
Universal education policies have helped improve enrollment, which is around 75% for primary school, but by secondary school the enrollment percentage drops to 15%. As often is the case, girls suffer the most from these deficiencies.
Our solution at Invictus Institute is to digitally reach as many kids as possible and create one-on-one mentorships to help kids reach their potential. As they do so, they will chart a new course for their families and improve their communities. Our goal is to be tutoring thousands and thousands of kids in these international communities.

We love the poem, “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley. Our goal is to build up individuals so they believe in themselves and their ability to overcome challenges and truly be the master of their fate, the captain of their soul.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
