We are an international, non-profit organisation working to create school places for children affected by poverty. We have been implementing education and welfare projects since 1994. Our origins were humble – we started our journey with just one teacher, 25 children and a desire to change the face of poverty forever built upon a belief that 'education works.’

Today, we have enough places for more than 103,000 children. About 10% of our students are orphans and rely us for extra support to enable them to attend school.

We have built almost 400 schools so far but the need is still great. A global study to the year ending 2014 found 263 million children and youth were out of school. This figure includes 142 million 15 to 17 year olds. Our work will not be complete until ever child is in school, receiving a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment.
