United World Schools' mission in Cambodia is to improve the education provision for the ethnic minorities in the forested north-east region of the country. These people live in the remote areas and to-date have never had any formal education provision. At present there are 54 active UWS community schools in Cambodia with a further 11 planned for development in 2017. Each school aims to enrol 200-250 students from grades 1-6 and needs to be partnered to a school in an OECD country.

Donate

Every penny donated goes towards helping girls and boys in marginalised and post-conflict communities.

Why does Naomi Findlay want to help UWS build schools?

59 million children have no access to a basic primary education

Of these children, 25 million are in the rural, low-income, post-conflict regions that UWS targets

Since 2010 international aid to basic education has been falling...

...and less than 1/3 of the aid is allocated to low-income countries

If all children in low income countries achieved basic reading skills, 171 million people could be lifted out of poverty

Due to the poor provision of basic education there are 774 million illiterate adults in the world today

Without a basic education, the children UWS work with have little chance of climbing out of the poverty they were born into.

They're stuck in a cycle of poverty, at a greater risk of malnutrition, illness and disease.

When a child is educated...

Education has the potential to change the lives of children

...it is life changing.
