The world is reeling daily from this brutal assault on Ukraine. The heroism and heart of the Ukrainian people have brought an outpouring of support from many people and countries.

Here in our UWC Costa Rica community, this war is very personal. We are sharing it with three of our teenage students from Ukraine. With what is happening at home, their families are so grateful and relieved that they are safe here with us in Costa Rica and able to realize their dreams of this unique educational and life experience that is UWC. And so are we. They can be teenagers who can laugh, create, and make lifelong friendships in a safe space. They are growing as educated leaders and global citizens. We are learning a lot from them too.

But there is more we need to do.

We have a deserving young student in the Ukraine ready to join our UWC Costa Rica community and our two year UWC IB degree program this summer. She needs our help. Our scholarship fund is nearly depleted. We need to quickly raise an additional $60,000 to enable us to not only cover the full scholarship but all expenses, from travel to pocket money.

Please, consider making as generous a donation as possible today and join us in making this UWC dream come true. You can make your tax-deductible gift right here. Just click on the "Donate Now" button to the right.

And please--take one more step. Share this important message with your family, friends, and colleagues. With this kind of support you are helping to give this young woman a transformative experience that will impact her life far beyond her 2 years with us in Costa Rica. You can make a difference.

With much gratitude and solidarity from our entire UWC Costa Rica community,

Susan Mullins - Board Chair
Mauricio Viales - Head of School
