United World Schools
At Portako, one of our areas of specialist expertise is helping schools, colleges and universities to grow, develop and become more efficient by providing them with cost-effective, easily-produced and high quality printed materials and branded promotional products.
United World Schools is dedicated to helping some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised children.
Thanks to donations from thousands of individuals, companies and partner schools, UWS builds schools in remote parts of countries such as Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal where there is currently no education. UWS then runs these schools until the local government authorities or local community agree to take responsibility for them.
Taught by local teachers, the children are given a good, basic education in their native language – at a fraction of what it would cost to provide the same in advanced, developed nations.
