WUSC’s Annual Report for the 2012-2013 is now available. It reports a year of important development results in WUSC’s priority focus areas of education, employment and empowerment for youth in Canada and around the world. The report also highlights significant achievements in raising the quality and access to education for girl refugees, particularly in Kenya and Malawi where WUSC and its local partners are making important strides forward and finding sustainable ways to ensure quality basic and secondary education for all youth. The Annual Report underlines the important contributions skilled volunteers make to development projects via WUSC’s celebrated Uniterra program of volunteer cooperation which has created and organized volunteer work terms for hundreds of generous, skilled volunteers each year since the program was founded in 2004.
The report emphasizes the importance of partnerships to the WUSC model. WUSC partners include 75 Canadian universities and colleges, dozens of private sector partners, dozens of funding and development partners, as well as hundreds of civil service partners and community organizations around the world. And the report includes beautiful photographs, many of them taken by volunteers involved in WUSC initiatives.
