PCE Foundation was founded in 2011 by Beatrice Achieng Nas, a driven and talented young woman who was able to complete her higher education with the financial support of American sponsors. Among many other community-based initiatives, PCE Foundation focuses on the education of rural girls to provide opportunities other than early marriage. Poverty, HIV-AIDS, domestic violence, lack of family planning and other problems plague the rural areas where PCE works. Raising awareness in the villages to combat these problems and providing opportunities for young people to pursue higher education has been an effective way for PCE Foundation to address these problems.
In keeping with AMBW’s desire to support post-high school studies for deserving young people, Christine is our first Ugandan student to receive an scholarship. Christine is a student at Kyambogo University studying to be a secondary school teacher. She said, “My spirit was strong enough to resist the pressure to get married. I could not stop learning because I knew where I was going even though I am from a poor family and my parents could not afford my schooling.”

Moving forward, in addition to continuing with our agenda of successful activities, we will pursue several initiatives to ensure our long-term sustainability. This will include
1) placing a focus on college level education for our students, and 2) expanding our reach through development of more organization to organization relationships and collaborating with other local non-profits. We feel these enhancements will offer significant benefits to all involved.

‘A More Balanced World’ has been formed to assist promising, yet economically disadvantaged, students of the world in the achievement of their maximum potentials, by providing them with the means to pursue education and develop a greater capacity to meet their individual goals.
How Can You Help?
Often, the many ways we can bring about a more balanced world are limited, more by our imagination than our means! You can contribute your Time, Talent, and Treasure to help ensure deserving students, from around the world prepare themselves for productive, meaningful and fulfilling roles in society.
