Open Schools Worldwide
We are committed to responding to the educational needs of children who are shut out of the traditional school system or are at risk of academic failure for reasons beyond their control. We aim to develop compassionate relationships and a supportive environment to overcome obstacles to learning.
Extreme poverty, neglect, dysfunctional families, abuse, abandonment, death of parents, and malnutrition put vast numbers of children worldwide at risk.
They often become street children, orphans, working children, and child-headed “families.” These children cannot alter their exposure to these life hazards and generally have difficulty getting access to basic education.
