In Latin America there are
28 Million children waiting
for a Simple School to open
in their barrio or community
We open schools in places where no one else norally would, where if our schools were not there the children would not receive any education.
We open schools where the meal a day we give might be the only real nourishment the children will receive that day.
We do not use our meagre funds to buy land and build buildings, we borrow a disused place or rent a shanty house which we share with homeless single parent families, or we nail some reed mats to sticks and cover the top with translucent cloth or plastic.
Our doctors and dentists will treat them, our social workers and psychologists help them and we will see about their clothes: it will all be in the name of and in aid of educating the poorest of poor children.

Below are examples of schools from our pilot-project city in Peru. The most schools we have opened are in Lima - because our goal is to show the Ministry of Education how simple it is to also provide education to the poorest most abandoned children: to the end that the Government will take on this work. We estimate we are about half way there - the Gov. now supplies some of our teachers and we are often invited to demonstrate our 'Simple School' system for getting street kids educated. In 7 other countries we have gone straight to the capital cities, and there opened Simple Schools in full view of the Ministry of Education, community leaders and the press. We calculate it will take about ten years in each country to effect the change we are after. One quarter of Latin Americans do not receive an education.

KEY :
"Date (Re)Opened" = Month & year school opened (no school has remained open for less than one term, almost all schools now in "Standby" status were operated for 2 terms, unless there is a second date, indicating the school was open at least 4 terms. Where there are two dates separated by a column (example: "10/04-5 | 01/07" this indicates the school opened October 2004 and operated until the end of 2005 - when there were not enough children currently available to justify remaining open. Then in Jan. 2007 we reopened the school and operated it another two terms.).

"Status": "Open" = This indicates that from the date last appearing before the photos until the present the school has been in continual operation, two terms per year.."·" Indicates that the school does not currently have a sponsor. "Standby" indicates the school is currently closed, but can be reopened whenever we consider that there are enough out-of-children in the school´s catchment area, and we feel reopening this particular school represents the best use of current funds. "··Standby" indicates a school which we wish to reopen as soon as a sponsor can be found.
