Description

The Women’s Education and Economic Centre (WEECE) supports marginalized women and their families in, allowing them to achieve economic stability and gender equality through: expanded access to micro-loans and small business training, legal assistance and leadership skills development.

WEECE supports a wide range of volunteer opportunities for nearly every skill set from animal husbandry to agriculture, teaching (English, computer skills, health) to medical services and AIDs/HIV education. Projects crop up regularly as well, things like the Zawadi Health Training Institute, and others that require a range of different volunteers depending on the project, so if the NGO’s mission resonates you should reach out directly with your skills and timing and see if it fits what they need!

This is the only community-based organization in the region using an integrated approach at a grass roots level to address the problems of poverty and discrimination.

The following are the core WEECE programs.

  1. MICRO-LOANS -program / Village Community Banks
  2. Advocacy & Counseling- Program
  3. Education Training Program
  4. Health Program
  5. ^Rehabilitation Center for the elders-program
