ABOUT UNITED ACTION FOR CHILDREN
United Action for Children focuses on human capital development, given that so many young people do not have the sckills to create a sustainable livelihood. Youth are given training in a number of areas including home economics, woodwork, sewing, dressmaking and crafts. The intention is to create a culture of entrepreneurship in a bid to give the youth the chance of a better future.
