Who We Are:
United Cultural Empowerment and Social Community Organization – Africa (UCESCO – Africa), is a Charitable NGO committed to supporting vulnerable women and children in marginalized communities in Africa. UCESCO – Africa supports vulnerable women, youth and children in marginalized communities in Africa. We do this via programs in:
- Education and talent development.
- Health and sanitation.
- Micro business support.
We do this through education, health care, and micro-business to emancipate families from poverty and empower them to take charge of their future.
UCESCO aims to build intercultural understanding through heritage protection and support for cultural diversity and human co-existence regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender
In Africa, poverty and lack of knowledge have rendered many families homeless and helpless- especially widows and women-led households. Most women are stripped off all their husband’s wealth the moment they are widowed.
Passionate about serving the less fortunate, especially the women, Mr.Kingsley raised $1 000 with the help of friends, well-wisher and others. With which he paid three month’s rent for a widow’s family, supplied food, clothes and also established a small(hotel) business. Three months later the hotel was thriving and the children had resumed school.
From this experience, Kingsley realized that his small gesture made a huge social and economic impact, not only for one family, but also trickling down to the community. For this reason, UCESCO Africa was born to empower vulnerable women and children living in slums and marginalized villages
We believe humans are happiest when they’re part of something greater

Kyle, one of the beneficiaries of the School
“Now the School has 3 new classes which are almost complete. It is my hope that the Kitchen, latrines, and library will be improved with more comfortable desks, studying areas, playground, and more books for revision.”
A beneficiary recounts
“When GEM Wellington School family from United Arab Emirate (UAE) visited us, it was unfortunate that they witnessed the bad state our school was in, despite our tireless efforts to make it as presentable as possible”
