Geographical remit: 


Education transforms lives. United World Schools (UWS) works in some of the world's poorest regions to give every child access to free education. We partner with local communities and supporters around the world to establish schools and teach the unreached. Our sustainable approach is transforming access to primary education in remote areas of South Asia.


We develop and sustain schools in remote and ethnic-minority communities that would otherwise have no access to education. We currently have over 150 schools open across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, and have enrolled over 30,000 children into education since 2009.
