A background to Schools Wikipedia

Schools Wikipedia was created by children's charity SOS Children. SOS Children's Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Try to find out how you can help children in other countries on our web site.
