UWC is immensely proud to partner with Rise in expanding educational opportunities to students from refugee backgrounds, including Kakuma Refugee Camp, based in my home country Kenya. Education is a gift like no other and it is also a human right. Conflicts, wars and injustice deny millions of children their right to education and jeopardize their wider development efforts… Thank you, Rise, for partnering with UWC to give the young people in Kakuma Camp and other refugee settings the ‘education power’ to realize their own dreams and shape their visions for peace, development and sustainability.
Today, we face a multitude of global challenges that require courage, imagination, passion, and resilience to solve. It is therefore hugely exciting that Rise is identifying and supportIng the next generation of talented problem-solvers who can help address these challenges.
At Global Citizen Year, we've learned firsthand the power of identifying exceptional young people on the cusp of adulthood, and helping them find their people, their purpose and their power to transform the world. This is why we're so excited to partner with Rise as they bring new resources to unlock talent and potential at a global scale. Working together, we can build a movement to launch the leaders our world needs now.
By joining Rise, we will support young people in Germany and beyond to implement their ideas for a better future. The German Foundation for Integration is proud to become a member of a global network of like-minded organizations and contribute with its long-term experience in the areas of migration, equal access to education, and anti-discrimination. I am convinced that this diverse community of talents will create a significant positive impact.
So often, it is the young people who see the future and make it happen, who are restless to rectify the shortcomings of those who came before them, and to make the world a better place not just for themselves but for everyone. This program helps these future thinkers and doers to see themselves as givers, too.
