United World Schools (UWS) is dedicated to changing the face of primary education in remote and marginalised regions. We work with local communities to teach children to read, write and count.

Our Mission

To create educational opportunities for children living in remote and marginalised communities

Our Vision

A world in which all children have the chance to go to school


How do we teach the unreached?  





Since 2008, we have given 19,000 children a life-changing education. Our aim is to reach 50,000 children with education by 2020.

A Note on Governance

We are an educational charity independent of any political, faith or cultural missions. We only engage in charitable activities. We have no shareholders nor does any person or company benefit from our income or assets other than as a recipient of charitable activities.

If we were to stop operating, UWS assets would be distributed to other charitable organisations for similar educational purposes.
