School the World is a community-driven nonprofit committed to solving extreme poverty through the power of education.

Our Local Strategy.

Using a grassroots model, we collaborate with community leaders, parents, and teachers to transform local school systems into drivers of positive social change. Our holistic educational programming begins with early childhood, ensuring children start school ready to learn; continues on to primary school, emphasizing literacy and social-emotional learning; and extends through lower secondary school, equipping young people with the digital and life skills needed to chart a path out of poverty.

Our Philosophy.

We believe all children love to learn, want to learn and are capable of learning. We believe all parents want a better life for their children and all teachers prefer motivation and achievement to apathy and failure. Nevertheless, we recognize that the complexities behind generational poverty require us to be innovative and often disruptive to make real learning possible.

Our Core Values.


We believe learning and evolving  is essential to creating change. Not only for the children, teachers and parents, but for our staff, our Board of Directors and our world-changing supporters!


Empowerment is an essential pillar of our work. Our model empowers all stakeholders, including children & youth,  to become education change agents.


We focus on the quality of our work and the honesty in our relationships. We commit to measuring our effectiveness, continually improving our programs and being transparent with all stakeholders and supporters.


We hold ourselves and all stakeholders accountable. The children deserve nothing less and without accountability, generational poverty is sure to continue.


We partner with communities to create community. Our model brings together government, community leaders, parents, teachers and global citizens, working together to change the status quo for children.
