Supporting the community
Cambridge Education Group is passionate about creating better educational opportunities for all, including less advantaged students around the world.
We are proud to be a major corporate partner of United World Schools (UWS), an educational charity what works in extremely poor, remote parts of the globe to provide education for children who would otherwise have none.
Our relationship with UWS is a partnership. We support educational projects in Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, and in doing so, promote and enhance global citizenship, leadership and responsibility amongst the Cambridge Education Group students.
"By working with Cambridge Education Group, we can reach thousands more out of school children. Having the chance to go to school transforms children's lives and leaves an enduring legacy in some of the poorest communities in the world." Tim Howarth, Chief Executive, United World Schools
About United World Schools
United World Schools is dedicated to helping some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised children.
Through donations from thousands of individuals, corporate supporters and partner schools, UWS develops schools in remove parts of countries such as Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, where there is currently no opportunity for education. UWS then runs these schools until the local government authorities or local community are able to take full responsibility for them.
Taught by local teachers, the children are given a good, basic education in their native language – at a fraction of what it would cost to provide the same in advanced, developed nations.
For example, a typical school for 200 children can be built for for less than £20,000. A typical UWS Community School can then be run for around £5,000 per year.
We strongly encourage everyone who works with us to support UWS in their work to help some of the least privileged people in the world to help themselves.
- Donate: Just £3 provides a child with educational materials for a month. And £650 will pay the salary of a local teacher for a whole year!
- Fundraise: UWS needs volunteers to fundraise and spread the word about its work. Organise a cake sale, run a half-marathon – or create your own sponsored challenge! There are innumerable things you could do. For more information, see here.
- Volunteer: If you have got specific professional skills that you think UWS could use, contact them today. For example, it could be fundraising, communications, championing the cause in your local area or organising publicity and PR campaigns. See here.
