Querida Comunidad,

I am so excited to share some significant updates regarding UWC and UWC Costa Rica.  It is important to pause and celebrate accomplishments, especially those that honor our legacy and invite us to look forward to a more positively optimistic future.

UWC International published its Annual Review.  This is a wonderful complement to our Impact Report and we invite you to take a moment to read and celebrate the significant accomplishments that you make possible here at UWC Costa Rica and movement-wide.  This is the impact you inspire through your giving.

We are also proud to announce that Faith Abiodun (new UWC International Executive Director) and Dr. Musimbi Kanyoro (Chair UWC International Board) will both join us here on our campus for the celebration of the 15th Anniversary on March 19th--more details coming up soon!

Last week, we kicked off the exciting news of UWC's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize!  Even though 95 organizations were nominated for the Prize this year, we feel so proud to know that the mission and vision of UWC are being celebrated and amplified this way.  As members of the UWC Costa Rica community, this honor belongs to all of us, and this recognition does not come in vain.  Each day our purpose is guided by the UWC mission and every one of us makes this positive and more peaceful impact tangible--so thank YOU for being part of this movement.  We couldn't do it without you!

Help us spread and celebrate this exciting news.  Tell your friends and family about UWC Costa Rica.  And why not, invite them to join you in supporting our work to shape a more peaceful world through empathy by looking beyond prejudice and labels and instead of connecting through our shared humanity to address local and global challenges.

Remember you can support UWC Costa Rica again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/uwccostarica22/

¡Muchas gracias!

Querida Comunidad,

Can you believe that it is 2022 already?  Here is a list of things that have happened at UWC Costa Rica the past couple of months:

  • In November, we celebrated Queer Week, including insightful conversations about Drag Culture, with guest performer BeRoxx, and transness with guest speaker Victoria Rovira. Click here for pictures!
  • Most students returned home or traveled around Costa Rica for December Break this year, and now they are starting a new semester.  The students that remained on campus or stayed with host families during the holidays spent their days off resting, going on hikes, traveling to farms and beaches around Costa Rica. Here are some pictures!

 Your generosity and unwavering support empower us to continue living our mission of making education a force to unite and transform!  If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the  2020-2021 Impact Report to learn all about the impact you inspire.

Enviandoles un saludo muy cordial,

96% of our staff have already been vaccinated!

Querida Comunidad,

 At UWC Costa Rica, we are gearing up for the start of our new school year this August.  We can't wait to see our campus bursting with life and continued inspiring projects from our second-year students as they welcome our new 107 students of the Class of 2023.

 And we already have great news to share:  96% of our educators have already been vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.  Remember, at UWC Costa Rica, when we say educators, we don't mean just our faculty, but our staff members from all areas of the college: staff, the kitchen team, tías y tíos, guards, and gardeners.  This achievement would not have been possible without our school's excellent relationship with the Costa Rican Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education.  As a result, we were one of the very first educational institutions in Santa Ana to start their vaccination process!

 Our 2021-2022 school year promises to be a very exciting one as we celebrate our quinceañera (15th) anniversary, start our new Strategic Plan process, and continue working towards our New Campus Project.  We hope we can count on your support once more and hope you stay in touch with all our news through our GlobalGiving Reports and our Community Newsletters--you can sign up for it here.

 Enviandoles un saludo muy cordial,
