One of the ways we meet this goal is establishing sturdy tent structures – a physical space for learning. Establishing a tent school is a three-step process:
We identity an international crisis area and assess our ability to enter and impact the displaced population there using the resources available to us.
We connect with like-minded partners based within their countries of origin who are engaged in, or have the capacity to establish, learning environments servicing displaced children within that region.
When a trusted partner has been established on location, we help them fund a tent school. Construction materials, study tables, chairs, books and other supplies are purchased. On average, the one-time cost of setting up a tent school is $5,000, with additional costs on an ongoing basis that are typically funded by a team of organizations working together to provide ongoing access to education.
If you are an individual or entity serving displaced populations through compassionate education, you may apply for a grant from Tent Schools International.
