“All individuals have the right to an education and that education should be available and equally accessible to all.”

Education For All Initiative

A key philosophy of GO International/Tamwood is Corporate Social Responsibility. As a leader in the education/tourism industry, we passionately believe that children all over the world deserve an education. We are committed to affecting positive change in education all over the world. Our corporate social impact program, Education For All, is now a movement, engaging employees, partners, our students, and their parents to change lives every day, in Christo Rey, Nicaragua; a community of approximately 4,000 people who live day-to-day largely by scavenging in the Managua city garbage dump.

Education For All encompasses initiatives that improve educational opportunities for children in this community in Nicaragua and focuses on three charitable enterprises:

social responsibility

Providing Uniforms for Students

Even though public education is free in Nicaragua, many children across the country are not able to attend school simply because their parents don’t have the money to buy the mandatory supplies.

GO International/Tamwood is helping to prevent poverty from being a barrier to education by purchasing uniforms, backpacks, shoes, and school supplies for children living in Christo Rey. With an education, children can learn to read, write, and do basic math, enough to help them get a job when they graduate and help move their family out of poverty.

Teachers Training Program

At GO International/Tamwood we believe that English expands your world! For this reason, experienced and highly-trained Tamwood teachers are volunteering to train local teachers in Nicaragua to help them to provide better education to their students.

With strong English skills, students have better employment prospects. Once a year, Tamwood flies two of its teachers to Nicaragua to train teachers in the after school care centres in the Christo Rey community.

Building an After School Centre

Many children have no place to go after school. That is why their parents take them to work in the garbage dump.

GO International/Tamwood is building an after school centre in the community of Christo Rey, where students can eat, study, have tutoring, and be safe while their parents are at work.
