Tent Schools International

Our mission is to demonstrate the love of Jesus for displaced children through safe, compassionate schools.


Who we are

The refugee crisis continues to grow across the globe. The United Nations estimates there are 110 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, and nearly half are children. In response, many organizations supply food, water and basic shelter, but most displaced children miss years of education.

We may not be able fix this crisis on our own, but with your help, we can do something

Our response is to bring schools to challenging locations, equipping children with the skills they need for life outside the camps. We serve families regardless of beliefs or background, and prioritize projects that help children heal from trauma.
