What is Sidewalk School?

The Sidewalk School exists to provide quality education to those who would go without as they experience displacement in the Matamoros Tent City. To do this, we work alongside the Matamoros community. In doing so, we employ experienced professionals who are currently facing displacement in the refugee camp to create lesson plans, teach classes, and provide support to students who are in need.

Why they are Awesome

  • Sidewalk School has provided schooling to over 200 students and has employed eight teachers and four teaching assistants who were similarly facing displacement in the Matamoros Tent City. Additionally, the Sidewalk School provides free and nutritious lunches to all of the students each class, and the school frequently provides necessary aid, when able, to those in need.
