Together for Development is the UWC Short Course in eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), held at the Waterford Kamhlaba United World College in Southern Africa. In a world where extreme poverty, shocking inequality and unfair exclusion persist, the need for change is more pressing than ever.

We believe young people have the ability and passion to change the world. Now in its second edition, this course will bring together 60 participants from around the world to critically engage with the concept of development and deeply understand the issues involved. Above all, we will empower them to become effective, empathetic change makers.

Being in eSwatini is a key component of the course, so participants will engage on- and off-campus with the reality of a developing country. Local community interaction and service are a fundamental part of the curriculum, and all participants will develop a project they can implement in their own communities.
