Dear all,

I hope everyone is doing well in these uncertain times.

The UWC National Committee of Mauritius has been generously offered a Dare to Dream full scholarship from UWC East Africa this year. This needs-based scholarship has been granted to our top candidate Ms. Yeldy Luchmun whom we would like to congratulate and help. This short video from Yeldy (https://youtu.be/Kd81ACYBoqw) peaks miles about her oozing passion to try something different. She hails from a very modest family background and in spite of qualifying for a full scholarship, cannot afford to pay the additional costs. Her father who works as a tailor and supports four children single-handedly is already struggling to make ends meet.

Yeldy’s family had never heard of the UWC movement. Yeldy learnt of UWC two years ago, when she stumbled upon a review of a German student who attended UWC. Moved by the review and driven by a unique thrust to change her life, she set her sights on studying at a UWC. She submitted her application and her parents let her do it thinking that this was a shot in the dark with scant possibility of success. She brilliantly navigated the successive rounds of application, with no external support. Needless to say that the selections committee found Yeldy to be a force to reckon with embowed with an uncanny determination to succeed against all odds.

But without our HELP, Yeldy will never attend UWC.

The additional costs are estimated at 5000 euros for 2 years and include travel expenses, purchase of a laptop, visa fees, calculator, medical insurance and pocket money.

UWC’s incredible and unique model of education is known not only for its academic level but also for the diversity of its students, whatever backgrounds they may come from. The continued success of the United World College has been made possible thanks to donations from people like you. Please help us to achieve this goal. Let’s show our solidarity and social commitment by standing as one and making this opportunity a reality for Yeldy.

Please give the amount that is appropriate for you. More importantly, please give - regardless of the amount because Yeldy deserves to attend UWC and money should not be the only deterrent stopping Yeldy from partaking of this experience that will change her life forever and for the better. 

UWC needs your help!

We thank you for your kind consideration and appeal to your “giving” sense because giving to the right cause at the right time can make all the difference.

Warm regards,

UWC National Committee of Mauritius
