We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the 2020 ‘PIEoneer of the Year’ award for our work providing an accessible education to children in remote areas.


On Friday 2nd October 2020, international educators and practitioners from across the globe gathered (virtually!) to attend the global PIEawards hosted by The PIE News (Professionals in International Education).

Here at United World Schools, we were honoured to be Finalists for the ‘PIEoneer of the Year’ award amongst seven other inspiring leaders in education, including UNESCO and FutureLearn. With such esteemed organisations in our category, we were even more honoured and overjoyed when UWS was announced as the winner! The PIE News said:

We always expect the PIEoneer of the Year to be making a difference across the education sector. United World Schools are a great example of raising the bar on innovation within education, in their ambitious mission to teach the unreached.

We’d like to dedicate this prestigious award to our teams across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, who’ve worked tirelessly for over a decade to provide a transformative education to over 35,000 children from marginalised communities. 

We’re immensely proud and grateful to our amazing network of supporters, as well as the PIE (Professionals in International Education) jury for recognising our life-changing work!
