This is our local application of the legacy we learned at UWC
In 2005 UWC alumna Geraldine Paredes Vásquez (Mahindra UWC
) set up W.H.Y Bolivia, a non formal education NGO focussed on intercultural dialogue, peace building, conflict resolution and leadership skills.
Many UWC students and alumni have volunteered for W.H.Y Bolivia and Geraldine also partnered with UWC in the Netherlands and Anima Leadership Canada to organise a Youth Integration Summit in 2008.
Geraldine says “This is our local application of the legacy we learned at UWC: to make education a force to unite people.”
