Tent Schools International

Our Team

Tent Schools International is a team dedicated to the cause of schools for children who are under-served. What brings us together is a belief in the power of education, a passion for human rights, and a deep concern for people who are overlooked by society (Matthew 25:35-40). We are parents, friends, neighbors, and advocates who are doing what we can to impact our world for the better.
