Every CO-ID school that opens is a beacon of hope for the local community, educating hundreds of children. However, things don't just happen overnight. We have to plan our locations and work closely with local villages to ensure the available.

The new schools must be in the right places as there is little if any transport - just your two feet. Many children willingly walk an incredible distance to come to school. Once the school sites are approved, we can get up to speed pretty quickly and organise the building, painting, desks and chairs - and of course sourcing teachers.

For just AUD$12,500 (US$10,000) per year we can build a new school. For a once-off donation of A$10,000 you can adopt an existing school.

Every dollar helps us to buy what we need to open a school for the children of today and the next generation. Anything you can pledge or give is much appreciated and a real boost to the finances. To donate, simply click on the links below.


Please help us open more new schools.
