This also implies equal access to quality education. No matter gender, ethnicity, culture or socio economical background. We seek support from foundations and funds which goals align with our values.
We are committed to building communities that are free from prejudice and intolerance, irrespective of people’s gender, and socioeconomic,
cultural, racial, religious or national background.
We believe in collaboration and mutual support, and recognise that respect underpins the smooth functioning of any encounter or team. People who work with our members find them dependable and respectful.
We inspire our members to believe that it is possible to make a difference and work with others who share that belief.
We consciously create supportive environments where differences are valued and recognised for the strength they bring to communities.
Our actions and language communicate compassion and commitment to communities. We work at all levels – personally, locally, regionally, nationally – to make the world a better place.
We are committed to learning through doing. By taking the initiative and taking on challenges, we learn about ourselves and those around us, developing a sense of responsibility for others.
Personal responsibility, accountability and integrity are at the heart of the UWC experience. We expect the people we work with to behave in a similar way.
We recognise our interdependence with the environment and actively seek solutions that will contribute to a sustainable future. Our choices and actions demonstrate this commitment.
We believe in the importance of acting on your beliefs and making your voice heard so your actions stand out.
Throughout time on an international level we’ve partnered with organizations like Horizon Foundation, which focuses on refuges and studentes affected by conflict, occupation and exile. On a more national/local level we receive support from organizations such as KidsRights, to empower young change makers, Stichting Kannunik Salden, to include refugee and underprivileged youth in the Netherlands and Stichting Onderwijssteun to provide and promote education.
We are eager to learn more about your foundation and find out how we can cooperate in the near future. You can reach Sandra van den Tillaard or Charlotte Groven via firstname.lastname@example.org / +31 43241010
UWC allows scholars to both educate and learn from their peers and people in their new communities. Helping to influence the way they view the world and to promote social cohesion.
