Manchester High School for Girls

Tien School, Cambodia - Charity

Tien SchoolWe are working in partnership with United World Schools (UWS) to provide support for Tien School in Cambodia. The vision of UWS is “To teach the unreached: where children in remote and post-conflict areas have access to basic education and improved life chances.” Their mission statement is “We work with communities to build schools and develop local teachers, providing a low cost and sustainable way to teach the unreached.”

In December 2015, Jack Clark, School Partnership Director for UWS, came into school to talk to the girls in Years 7 through to Senior 6 about the work UWS do globally and to introduce the girls to the village of Tien in Cambodia and to the school they have worked to build with the local community. There has been a heart-warming and large response from the girls, with many wishing to get involved in the fundraising.

At the end of the summer term 2018 we sent £3056.51 to United World Schools (UWS) to send to Tien. They will be sending an official update on how we are continuing to make to the education of the school children. New resources which we are funding are giving them new experiences and new challenges as the teachers provide a more creative learning environment. The provision of teachers and paying for their training and their salaries is the key to the success of Tien school and new pupils arrive at any moment, often when they are just passing through the village.
