Featured Project: Empowering Women & Families in Mining Communities

"....we are going to have devastation in these mining communities unless we now have a system where there is a simultaneous commitment to developing health care, education, and the economic diversification necessary to leave these communities better off when the mines play out than they are when the mines are going on…....what U4C is doing will mean that, when the mines play out, the music will play on for the people living there if they have a diversified economy and an educated people..."
