In this program, we empower women through life skills, finance literacy, communication skills and marketing, entrepreneurship skills, IT/online marketing, and many programs to awaken the giant in them to improve their life and their families

Below is the overview of the training

Child care Support

The opportunity to volunteer at UCESCO-Africa has been a learning experience and an opportunity to share skills through creating impacts. Getting to know ways of showing love and care to the community in the informal sectors like slums. UCESCO-Africa is doing commendable work in improving the lives of the slum community.

Volunteering with UCESCO-Africa has taught me valuable skills for personal and growth opportunities like teamwork and leadership skills. The dedicated team of volunteers and staff at UCESCO-Africa have shown genuine passion for making a positive impact. The flexibility of UCESCO-Africa has made it easy for every individual from various backgrounds to get involved. Students, professionals, and even retirees have been given a chance to contribute in various ways to touch lives in the slums. Volunteering at UCESCO-Africa has been an eye-opener to support individuals who are in need of support. It has been a fulfilling learning experience.
