Who We Are
United Cultural Empowerment & Social Community Organization (UCESCO) is a charity organization, committed to increasingly and sustainably address poverty amongst vulnerable households located in informal settlements and rural villages. Our focus is on vulnerable Girls and Women empowerment, creating sustainable transformation in their communities.
Families and individuals within these communities, desire change: they long for adequate food, good health, education, and a secure life. They feel hopeless in their current situation, but lack the knowledge and resources to change. They deserve to live a life free from poverty.
We empower them, and link them with communities and work towards avenues that generate sustainable income. Bringing new opportunities to build schools, create cooperatives, form community savings schemes, fund micro-businesses, access healthcare, food security, raise school fees; aiming to permanently transform their lives, which will contribute towards the development of Africa as Continent to be a Center of excellence.
