The Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) published an endorsement of UWS in their October Newsletter. The newsletters went to 18,000 school, college and system leaders across the UK. Their members work in more than 90 per cent of UK secondary schools and colleges and the endorsement has since led to a number of new partner schools.
The ASCL endorsement reads:
United World Schools is an exciting charity that seeks to teach the unreached by building and developing sustainable, community-led free schools in rural, post-conflict zones for the world’s poor and marginalised children, saving them from lives of poverty, poor health and abuse. They work by building partnerships between schools in the UK with communities needing a school in South East Asia.

We are really excited by the prospect of expanding the UWS movement as more and more people find out about the need for education in remote, post-conflict communities.
