PEAS is a social enterprise that educates thousands of disadvantaged children in quality secondary schools in Uganda and Zambia. A secondary educated child in Uganda earns 158% more per hour than a primary school completer and the children of secondary educated girls are twice as likely to survive beyond the age of five. PEAS runs a fast growing network of sustainably financed public private partnership secondary schools. We are backed by major corporate, institutional and private funders and our innovative financial model has positioned PEAS for rapid growth on the back of the recent inclusion of secondary education in the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2016, two external evaluations have shown PEAS students are poorer than those in government schools and that they arrive with lower prior learning. PEAS schools help them to close the achievement gap and then outperform peers in government schools but at a fraction of the cost per student. Schools receiving our full package of support and supervision are now in the top 12% in Uganda by learning progress. This impact, our sustainability and the low cost per beneficiary of the PEAS approach have seen us win a series of international development and education awards.
