About us

Education transforms lives; unlocking children's potential, empowering communities and breaking the cycle of poverty. United World Schools (UWS) works in some of the world’s poorest regions to give every child access to a free, quality education. 

Over the last 12 years, United World Schools have built 250 schools, trained 1,200 teachers and reached over 43,000 children in Cambodia, Nepal and Myanmar with a life-changing education.
