About Us

United World Schools (UWS) is dedicated to improving the educational opportunities of children living in some of the most remote and marginalized communities around the world. By providing children with a basic education, we are striking at the heart of long term poverty and deprivation – a long game but one we are tackling head on and with ambition and commitment. UWS provides a flexible education model that is simple yet effective in remote regions. The model follows the national curriculum of the host country, while supporting teachers to implement educational programmes that are appropriate for the contexts in which they are working.

We are an ambitious and expanding management body headquartered between Washington, DC and London, UK, with a large program team delivering across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal. All of our staff are deeply passionate about what they do and are committed to going above and beyond to ensure every child has access to basic education.
