Teach the Unreached
With an Infinite Purpose to help create a healthier, greener, more empowered world, Tropic aim to be a force for good beyond beauty. Education empowers children, opening the way for them to access better jobs and higher incomes later in life. With quality education, every child has the tools to reach their full potential. That’s why we’re working with United World Schools, who share our vision of every child having the chance to go to school.
WHO ARE UNITED WORLD SCHOOLS?
United World Schools (UWS) work with local communities and supporters around the world in some of the world's poorest, most remote regions to give every child access to free education, no matter their background. Their work is transforming access to primary education in remote areas of South Asia and - most importantly - focuses on sustainability, ensuring that once the schools are established they remain to serve the community for many decades to come.
Since 2009, UWS has enrolled over 30,000 children into over 150 schools across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, effectively breaking the cycle of illiteracy for hundreds of communities.
HOW YOU CAN PLAY A PART
Through our partnership with United World Schools, every Tropic purchase, no matter how big or small, now funds education for children living in some of the world’s poorest, most remote communities. For every collective £50 spent with us (excluding delivery), a whole school day in either Cambodia, Nepal or Myanmar will be donated.
OUR DONATIONS GO TOWARDS
- Building new schools and maintaining them.
- Training teachers and improving education quality
- Classroom essentials, such as desks, chairs and whiteboards
- Filling school libraries with books
- Health services such as sanitation
UWS schools are free for all to attend within the community it is built, with all the resources provided.
Education gives these children the ability to empower themselves and catalyse change. In turn, they are then able to help others and strengthen their families and communities. Girls education is particularly important in achieving gender equality. Attending school can prevent girls from marrying young and starting families at an early age. Instead, education gives girls better job opportunities and higher lifetime earnings, allowing them to break out of the cycle of poverty they may be born into. Within the communities that UWS supports, everyone must commit to sending all of their children to school, including girls.
Tropic's goal is to provide over a million days of education by the end of 2020 - that's 5,000 children's education for a whole school year! We hope you'll support this mission, made even better by the knowledge that by looking and feeling good, you're also doing good too.
