Description

School the World is a non-profit dedicated to developing the quality of education in the developing world. We take a universal approach to providing each child with a lasting and impactful education.

School the World was founded in 2009 and has expanded rapidly. Our program includes building three-classroom primary schools at a low price for communities living in extreme poverty. We have commissioned 26 schools in rural Guatemala and recently broke ground for two more schools in Honduras. We match funds provided by the local government to build the school, train parents as at-home motivators and long-term advocates for their child’s education, provide books to build a mini-library in each school and fund training of our school’s teachers at the state university.

Sustaining our program requires integrated partnerships and teamwork. Each team member at School the World has the opportunity to learn from and teach their colleagues while adding value to a young and rapidly growing organization.
