Program Overview

Since Bowing for Change's inception, our mission has been to spread compassion and educational opportunities in whatever way we can. 
It has been shown that a quality education reduces poverty, increases income, boosts economic growth, and are likelier to live healthier lives. Education is often many children’s pathway out of poverty, and we believe it is our obligation as an organization to help schools give that opportunity to children. Which is why education is one of our priorities as a charity.


Sri Lanka School project

School buildings are not just where children do schoolwork, but also where many of their values, ideas, and social relationships are shaped. The Clever Classrooms report from the University of Salford showed that academic performance could be boosted through the main factors: 1) naturalness (light, temperature, air quality); 2) individualization (ownership, flexibility) and 3) stimulation (complexity, color). This project is designed to use these factors to address violence in schools and to improve academic performance.
