Campaign launched: November 30, 2018

Run for Peace | Run for Donations

 

Consistent with the UWC (United World College) mission of promoting peace, the UWC Graduates Organisation in Hong Kong and the UWC Hong Kong Committee are jointly raising scholarship funds to enable future students to study in one of the 17 UWC  schools and colleges worldwide.

Over 60% of students enrolled in UWC are supported by scholarships. Most of them are from humble backgrounds, given a fresh boost of hope to obtain two years of pre-university education that helps transform both their future and the community to which they belong. They become part of a movement that is committed to making education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.

 

 

The Run for Peace 2018, organised by the UNESCO Hong Kong Glocal Peace Centre (GPC), has invited Professor Fung Hong, Pearson College UWC alumnus, as its guest of honour. It shares a similar mission as UWC as it “seeks to promote individual, social, cultural and ecological peace, and encourages all to co-create a more peaceful and sustainable future.” We hope to engage UWC alumni and like-minded individuals who are participating in Run for Peace 2018 to go an extra mile towards this joint initiative.

 

How to Support

Our goal is to raise HK$50,000 towards the UWC HK Scholarship Fund. 

Participants and friends of the UWC Community can support by donating in increments of HK$100 via SparkRaise.

Goal is set until 23 December 2018.

 

The UWC Impact in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has been represented at UWC for over 35 years. With a community of over 2000, many Hong Kong UWC graduates currently work or study in here in a wide range of professions: from medicine to law, from NGOs to academia, from performing arts to media. Amongst them are enthusiasts and #change-makers who make active contributions towards their communities, such as through serving at public entities, charity organisations and volunteer work.
