Mo School is open to partnering with non-profits, philanthropies, foundations, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arms of companies and other organisations to further the goals of Mo School and ensure holistic development of the children.
Since the inception of Mo School in May 2018, we have been approached by national and international organisations. The offerings from these organisations cover a wide spectrum of topics from improving language and computer skills of children – to teaching them about safety and sanitation – to counselling them on how to cope with the trauma of a natural disaster (e.g. cyclone, floods). We are in discussions with some these organisations and will post updates from time to time about our upcoming collaborations. Stay tuned.
If you would like to partner with Mo School, please send us your proposal / ideas / initial concept note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the word partner in the subject line of your email.
