Positive Planet Team

Positive Planet Team (PPT) is a non-profit organization based in New York City and in the Rakai and Masaka Districts in Uganda that creates partnerships between the US and Ugandan schools. Our primary goals are to improve the educational infrastructure of the Ugandan schools and to have the US students see that they can make a positive impact on the world. Over the past 6 years we've raised about $90,000, all of which has been used to build classrooms, water tanks, sanitation facilities, desks, repair roofs, and other similar projects that have affected close to 3,000 Ugandan students.
