You may know Mohamed Yousif from the winning World Press Photo 2020. This image taken by Yasuyoshi Chiba tells the story of Mohamed, who took part in the protests that toppled former president of Sudan al-Bashir in 2019.

Mohamed wants to continue fighting for a better and safe future and that is where the missions of WPP and UWC Maastricht come together. In september 2020, Mohamed starts his education at our school.

The National Committee of The Netherlands, World Press Photo and UWC Maastricht have joined forces to find financial support for his school fees. Together, we managed to raise sufficient funds for his first year. We could very well use your help for his second and last year.
