Why volunteer with UWS?
UWS volunteers are helping change lives right now – raising vital funds, developing valuable skills, experience and friendships along the way.
Be inspired by the genuine desire to reach out to support those who are less fortunate and be in the company of dedicated like-minded people – while improving your own skills portfolio too. We know time is precious. So use yours to do something important.
How you can volunteer
Volunteer in a UWS School (Partner School students and teachers only)
We take up to 6 volunteers a year from any of our UWS Partner Schools. All placements are currently in Cambodia, but we may offer additional volunteer places in Nepal by 2019/20. We ask all volunteers to be over the age of 17 and to commit to at least 12 weeks of teaching in their UWS School.

Work with UWS
Have you got a specific professional skill that you think the UWS central team could use? If so, let us know about your experience so far and how much time you’re able to give.
One of the biggest barrier to providing education in rural areas is finance. We would love to be your charity of choice, either through regular giving or one-off donations. All the funds don’t have to come from you, so could you could give your time and energy by organising an event or sponsored activity and donate the proceeds to teaching the unreached.
Get in touch via [email protected]
and tell us what you are planning and we can link your donation to a specific project.
