A Note on Governance

We are an educational charity independent of any political, faith or cultural missions. We only engage in charitable activities. We have no shareholders nor does any person or company benefit from our income or assets other than as a recipient of charitable activities.

If we were to stop operating, UWS assets would be distributed to other charitable organisations for similar educational purposes.
