I am part of UWS because:
Education has played an instrumental role in my life and I am passionate about enabling children to create transformative opportunities for themselves and their communities through the power of education. UWS not only educates tens of thousands of children who would not otherwise have access to schooling, but transforms educational systems to build a sustainable, equitable future.
