Who We Are
UCESCO Africa is a charity Non-Governmental Organization, committed to support vulnerable women and children through education, health and micro-business boost to lift their families from poverty; and empower them to take charge of their own future. Families and individuals within these communities, desire change; they long for adequate food, good health, education, and, 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.
UCESCO believes that when women have control over their assets and income, they reinvest in their families and communities. They are therefore able to provide basic necessities like more nutritious food, education for their children, and access to better health care. That’s why we invest in women and female business owners, equipping them with the tools and expertise they need to make their talents/Skills/businesses thrive and grow.
