Happily ever smarter

Help children live

Happily ever Smarter

Happily Ever Smarter was a life-changing United World Schools campaign backed by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) under its UK Aid Match initiative.

Between 29th April 2021 and 29th July 2021, the UK government matched your donations to help children from marginalised communities across Asia to get a vital education and live Happily Ever Smarter. Your donations will help us educate children, train teachers, build new schools and more in hundreds of remote, marginalised communities across Asia. 

Thanks to your incredible support, we raised £2,809,067 to help children live Happily Ever Smarter, including £1,296,677 from the UK government!

Join the 180 Challenge and help us turn children’s lives around through education.

 Across the world, 258 million children are already missing out on education, and Covid-19 has put even more children’s education at risk like never before. 

Can you help us pull a 180 on the education crisis, and turn things around for children with no access to education?

Before UWS built a school near 6-year-old Amir, it took 180 minutes for him to walk to and from school every day.

In the region of Nepal where Amir lives, less than a third of the population completes primary school, which keeps those most marginalised trapped in a preventable cycle of poverty and illiteracy - and due to COVID-19, accessing a safe, quality education is more difficult than ever before. 

Every child deserves the opportunity to go to school. Through providing distance learning, building schools, training teachers and empowering local communities, we can help children like Amir get an easily accessible education. Together we can make going to school a reality for thousands of primary-school-age children, for the very first time in their lives. 

Help turn Amir’s life around. Pull a 180, and help transform a child’s future for the better.
