Creating Learning That Lasts

School the World transforms lives by working to make quality education accessible to all children and families living in rural villages of Central America.

We believe education is a vital component to alleviating poverty, increasing gender equality and promoting economic sustainability.

Our work is built on the belief that lasting change can only happen by:

  • creating a safe place for children to learn and thrive
  • securing physical and financial commitment from local government
  • deeply engaging parents through mandatory parent education classes
  • providing on-going training for teachers
  • supplying much needed books and learning materials
  • constantly measuring for improvement and success
  • nurturing global leaders through our Student Service Learning Program

I can’t read. I can’t write. I can barely speak Spanish. I never had the chance to go to school. I am so grateful to School the World because I now know my daughters have a different future. Maybe they will be a teacher someday and not be so poor like us.
