Tent Schools International comes alongside Christian leaders in refugee camps and other transitional areas to establish educational opportunities for children fleeing war, persecution and natural disaster.
Displaced people groups exist on every continent around the globe, and half of displaced people are children. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) supply food, water and basic shelter, but most children seeking refuge do not have the opportunity to attend school. Temporary learning structures, technology, and resources for teachers are the most efficient, effective ways to bring education to displaced children, equipping them with the skills they need for life outside the camps.
Learn more about the impact of education in refugee camps by watching our video release – “One Day, You Will Be Something”.
We advocate for displaced children and their families through access to education and other welcoming initiatives, regardless of religion, ethnicity or nationality.
Your support empowers this mission to:
Schools for Refugees – We connect with in-country partners to fund physical spaces for learning in refugee camps and other transitional areas.
Laptops for Refugees – We create access to technology as a resource for both teachers and older students involved in career training.
Resources for Teachers – We develop guides and training materials for teachers working with displaced children, using a trauma-informed approach to education.
Tent Schools International is a registered 501(c)(3), non-profit organization whose support depends solely on voluntary gifts from supporters. We are a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and are committed to financial integrity and good stewardship. Each gift is a contribution to the mission of Tent Schools International and will be used to meet our most pressing needs.
Founded in 1987, Tent Schools International (formerly Worldwide Christian Schools) used teacher training, volunteer construction teams and school/student sponsorship programs serving our global educational partners, achieving these results:
Our vision has always been to bring education centered on the teachings of Jesus to children who are marginalized.
