our work

U4C creates opportunities for vulnerable populations, especially women through improved literacy, a better understanding to access & utilize healthcare resources, and economic empowerment.

How We Do It

By building strong strategic partnerships and collaboration with the community and stakeholders, more families benefit.

Our Projects

U4C’s projects are guided by the Global Goals (SDGs) and they are strategically connected to achieve sustainable change.

U4C New Initiatives

U4C has evolved into a mission to provide a platform for social impact leaders to effectively maximize and scale social impact.

We believe that women have the power of enhancing the human and economic development of the communities where they live. Our work with women in vulnerable and extreme poverty areas has resulted in refinement of theories of change and enhancement of evidence-informed strategies.

Our model is based on three essential pillars of sustainability: education, healthcare, and economic empowerment. Our work is to create opportunities by offering a comprehensive set of programs: literacy & leadership training, knowledge on how to access/utilize healthcare resources, develop micro-enterprises including access to seed capital and entrepreneurial support. These efforts have demonstrated the importance of working with and building the capacity of local education and health providers.

Too many efforts to lift women out of extreme poverty fail to be sufficiently comprehensive, failing to provide resources and support essential to meaningful and lasting change.  Failing to provide a genuinely comprehensive approach can defeat well-intended efforts in this regard.

Our Core Areas

Education

Literacy and education is a fundamental right. If more women are literate, educated & become leaders, they improve their health, income and democracy.

Healthcare

Women have the right to know and be informed on how to access & utilize healthcare resources. They also have the right to know their legal and environmental rights.

Economic Development

When women have the chance to learn new skills, they feel more confident and can be able to create businesses, jobs and contribute to an improved, diversified economy.

Where We Work

Our work focuses on isolated and remote communities.  We are currently working with different communities in Bolivia and Tanzania, but choose to work in places where we are needed,  based on a feasibility study and solid partnership.
