Every penny, pound, cent or dollar donated goes towards helping girls and boys in marginalised and post-conflict communities through funding projects and building educational opportunity.
If you’re a UK tax payer, you can even increase the value of your donation by a whopping 25% by opting for Gift-Aid. That’s because UWS can reclaim basic rate tax from the HMRC on your donation, increasing its amount at no extra cost to you.
Each UWS school costs $30,000 to build and $10,000 to run.
The impact even small donations can have is significant – we pride ourselves on delivering value for money and ensuring the biggest possible impact from every donation.
