About United World Schools

United World Schools’ mission is to improve, through education, life opportunities for the world's children living in the most remote and marginalized communities.

Today, around the globe, nearly 260 million children are not in school. We work in the regions of Cambodia, Madagascar, Myanmar and Nepal where schools don’t exist. We partner with local communities and national governments to build and operate elementary schools where every child has access to free, quality, inclusive education.

We are a not-for-profit NGO that is funded by individual and corporate sponsors, and our global network of Partner Schools. Our Partner Schools are public and private schools around the world that spread awareness about our work and raise funds to support the building and operation of our schools.
