Let's join forces to build a school! For example, if four teams step up to each raise $5,250 we'll have enough funds to build a one-room school in rural Honduras.
Schools for the Children of the world is celebrating its 20th anniversary of building schools. We started with the hopes of completing one school project a year. To date, SCW and SCW affiliated organizations have completed 120 new and renovated school projects in the past 20 years. We are now in the mists of a 20 by 2020 campaign where we hope to complete 20 new schools by the year 2020. These efforts have all been accomplished by lots of volunteers. We have exactly one U.S. SCW employee, one part-time staff member in Haiti and a small staff in Honduras.
Individual school projects are often funded by school groups, church groups, family foundations, private companies (in Honduras), and individuals. The projects are funded on a matching formula where the funds SCW raises is matched by the local communities. Everyone has skin in the game and this model results in quality classrooms with local commitment, involvement and ownership of the schools.
