2020 Awards List
Once again UWC students have impressed us and the quality of 2020 projects is fantastically high. GoMakeADifference is delighted to announce it will be supporting 32 projects run by UWC students living the UWC mission after they graduate this summer. UWC students will be making a difference in Africa, Asia, Americas, Middle East and Europe throughout 2020. The total value of grants awarded for 2020 is $32,000.
Here at GoMakeADifference we can't wait to see the end of project reports from UWC projects leaders on how their projects were delivered. It is great to hear from the students, what worked, what was a success, what they learned and what they would have done differently if they had their time again. The reports provide motivation to future students thinking of applying to make a difference. We wish you well!
As always, we would like to thank the local UWC school/college coordinators for everything they do in promoting the award scheme, and also for everyone applying.
Hopefully 2021 UWC graduating students will be inspired by these initiatives and will start to think about how they can make a difference in the near future and, as Jill says, “live the UWC mission!”

I received a GoMAD grant for a HIV Youth Awareness Campaign in Nairobi back in 2002. Here I am now, founder of an organization that is riding on the same philosophy. I am so excited to honor Jill and Colin on the impact that they had in what I do now.
