Mission & Values

Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA Mission Statement

Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA strives to lay the foundation for its students to become responsible citizens who have the skills, knowledge and sense of purpose to provide leadership in both Africa and the world.

Our Values

We passionately believe that all young people must be given access to education of the highest standard to enable them to realise their potential. Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA is proud to deliver that opportunity to disadvantaged yet talented African students through its Scholarship Programme.

Waterford highly values its socio-economic and cultural diversity. In 1967 His Majesty King Sobhuza II, Ingwenyama of Swaziland, granted Waterford the title “Kamhlaba”, eloquently describing Waterford’s culturally rich and diverse community thus:

“We are all of the earth, which does not see differences of colour, religion or race. We are ‘kamhlaba’ – all of one world.”
