Senior Philanthropic Advisor, Pearson College UWC

Theron is a Senior Philanthropic Advisor for Pearson College UWC, but for a long time he also doubled as a houseparent. Theron was the first to insist that the East House houseparent role is a joint one with partner Elizabeth and their children Solomon and Mirabai. An alumnus (USA, Pearson College UWC 1989-1991), Theron brings a passionate belief in the UWC movement and a strong background in fundraising and advancement to his new roles.


“I think the most satisfying – personally meaningful – are the times on a small scale when one, two or three students come in and hang out for a little while. Of course, it’s Solomon who brings them in!”
