Teaching the Unreached - United World Schools
LSC Education were delighted to join the United World Schools Gala Dinner at the Globe Theatre, London this week. Invited by Jane Sparrow, Ambassador for the charity, the evening showcased the incredible work that UWS undertakes in areas such as Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal.
This pioneering charity, set up by Chris Howarth, continues to gather momentum globally, bringing the gift of education; reading, writing and maths to children in the world’s poorest regions.
To date UWS has 65 primary schools either built or currently under development across the three countries, and have already provided an education to nearly 15,000 previously out-of-school children. The model has sustainability at its heart and with a donation of just £25,000 a brand new UWS school can be built and resourced. UWS then partner each of their communities with a school in the UK or overseas who take on a 1:1 partnership. Current school partners include Eton College, Dulwich Singapore and St Christopher’s Bahrain.
Jane Sparrow, Ambassador commented, ‘The Gala Evening was a huge success and we are delighted to know that £180,000 was raised for UWS. I’m passionate about personal growth and education is a core part of achieving that. Everyone should have the opportunity to go to school and the incredible work that UWS do means education, a way out of poverty, reduced disease and a dramatic reduction in child trafficking in these remote communities.’
A unique opportunity for your school
We invite you to consider becoming a partner school. There are opportunities for schools and colleges to fundraise to build a new UWS School or partner with an existing project. Imagine giving your students the chance to do something truly life-changing and to see first-hand how their charitable efforts can impact on others.
