2015 was a successful year for UWS. More children than ever before attended a UWS school as we expanded our operations in Cambodia, opened a new hub in Myanmar and began work in Nepal. Read the full report here.
Molly Windust is leading South Hampstead High School’s partnership with UWS. Here, she talks about Month 33 during which the school will be aiming to raise enough money to build a new UWS school in Cambodia.
This week we were delighted to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Korean Re-shaping Development Institute (ReDI), who have agreed to sponsor two new UWS schools in Myanmar.
The past few months have been busy for the UWS Nepal team! Since the inauguration of our first school in May, a further 4 schools have been completed, and another building project is already underway. This means that we will soon have 6 schools in the Sankhuwasabha district of East Nepal.
School’s out for summer (or, monsoon season!), but that has not dampened the efforts at our community schools. Earlier this month our Cambodian education team led teacher training sessions for the community teachers, using some of the interactive materials provided in our classrooms.
We continue to be inspired by the imaginative ways in which UWS supporters fundraise for our schools. We have also seen that this hard work is not something that has to forfeit on the ‘fun’. If you’d like to get involved, but are feeling in need of some inspiration, here is a quick round up of our favourite, fun, and very feasible fundraising activities to incorporate into your home, workplace and local community.
We are thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in the 2016 Charity Times Awards! UWS is shortlisted in the International Charity category, which commends best practice among NGOs working across the globe.
Educate A Child (EAC), a programme of the Qatar based Education Above All Foundation (EAA), has signed a three year agreement with United World Schools (UWS), a UK registered charity, to provide quality primary education to over 33,000 out of school children across remote and marginalised communities in Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal.
