The Women’s Education and Economic Centre (WEECE)

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!
