How We Do It
By building strong strategic partnerships and collaboration with the community and stakeholders, more families benefit.
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 four essential pillars of sustainability: education, healthcare, economic empowerment and peace building. 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
Literacy and education is a fundamental right. If more women are literate, educated & become leaders, they improve their health, income and democracy.
Women and young people play a fundamental role in sustaining peace. Their engagement in peace processes, governance, institution-building, rule of law, the security sector, and economic recovery is critical.

Women have the right to know and stay informed on how to access and utilize healthcare resources.
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.
