What higher option to mark three unbelievable years partnering with United World Colleges (UWS) than by opening our third faculty with them?
Situated in Madagascar, in a southwestern village known as Ampandrivotse (pronounced Am-Pam-Chee-Voe-Chey), our new faculty is offering 200 kids with formal training for the very first time.
That is all because of our ‘10% For The World’ initiative. As a part of our mission to make the world a more healthy, greener, extra empowered place, we have pledged that 10% of all income will go to charities and good causes.

Simply final month, we opened the primary UWS faculty to exist in Madagascar. We turned our consideration to this space of the world as a result of a staggering 75% of the inhabitants dwell under the poverty line, and solely 40% of youngsters end main training (UWS). Along with UWS, we selected Ampandrivotse as the college website due to its distant, coastal nature. This makes it particularly tough for NGOs to entry, that means fundamental infrastructure is commonly unattainable, and offering instructing is considerably harder than it’s in the remainder of the nation.
Each youngster has the appropriate to training: to have the ability to learn, write, and select their very own path in life. These dwelling in marginalised communities are not any totally different.
