“We are a group of UWC alumni and UWC teachers, excited to spread the UWC spirit and experience beyond the borders of the two-year college experience. A fantastic way of doing so are UWC Short Courses.

The idea to organise a UWC Short Course in Swaziland was born, when a number of graduates from Waterford Kamhlaba United World College of Southern Africa were thinking about possibilities to stay in touch with Swaziland and the College and a way to give some of the experiences and knowledge acquired during the UWC college time back to the community. The idea became a plan when a call for more team-members was circulated in February 2010. Since then a wonderfully motivated and creative team has come together and the UWC Short Course "Together for Development" is becoming reality. 

We would like to introduce the current team members who are behind the scenes turning a plan into an unforgettable experience for 55 teenagers from all over the world.”
