AURORA HUMANITARIAN INITIATIVE - part of IDeA Foundation
Aurora-UWC Gratitude Scholarship Programme (formerly known as 100 Lives)
In 2015 the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative launched the Aurora-UWC Gratitude Scholarship Programme to educate 100 underprivileged students as a way to express gratitude on behalf of the survivors of Armenian Genocide and the global Armenian community to the people who offered shelter and food to those displaced by this conflict a century ago.
Ten inaugural Aurora-UWC Scholars selected by UWC national committees in Syria, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Palestinians Camps in Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt started their education at four UWC schools and colleges in September 2016. All these students come from troubled backgrounds, mostly from communities affected by conflicts and show a great potential for becoming advocates for a more peaceful and sustainable future.
