We are delighted to have been recognised by COBIS, and their support will help us reach more children in remote communities with a life-changing education.

UWS has worked in partnership with a number of COBIS schools for many years. UWS is delighted to currently partner with the British School of ParisBritish School in TokyoBritish School of BahrainDubai CollegeGEMS Jumeirah Primary SchoolGEMS Wellington International School, and Dubai English Speaking School & College. These brilliant schools have helped us raise vital funds, given their time and raised awareness, to provide life-changing education in Cambodia, Nepal and Myanmar. These impactful partnerships have established and maintained schools in some of the most remote regions of Asia, providing education to over 1,000 children. We are so pleased to have established a partnership with COBIS, and the 450 schools and organisations who make up their global membership.

High-quality COBIS schools, which educate over 165,000 students and employ more than 16,000 teachers, can be found in 76 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. Together, we will share the transformational power of education with every member of the COBIS community. Not only this, but our partnership will stretch across COBIS’ influential networks within global education, helping us to reach new audiences, and raise vital funds and awareness for our work. Throughout the journey of our partnership, UWS will support the COBIS school network with educational resources for global learning in the classroom, giving young learners the opportunity to think critically about important issues in the world.
