SOS - Save Our Schools

Formed in 2012, the Save Our Schools network was formed by indigenous peoples’ groups, educators and support groups to combine efforts to address the need to advocate and mobilize resources to serve the indigenous and children’s rights to education.

They uphold these schools’ programs that instill cultural heritage and pride to protect their culture and ancestral and against the encroachment of multinational investments, and instead promote a sustainable, community-based development program.
