At the Heart of
Who We Are
At the heart of UCEC we believe in giving a voice to those who do not have a voice of their own. We have been in operation for the past 2 decades and have helped thousands of men, women and children who have been affected by Gender Based Violence, Human Trafficking and various other challenges.
We continue daily to build long term strategic partnerships with individuals and corporations to ensure our reach is never limited by a lack of resource. As we endeavor to bring the change we planned for many years, we operate in a manner that is sustainable and encourages a long term strategy to continue to provide the invaluable support and structures to those who have been affected.
Our highly trained team of skilled individuals have been exposed to a variety of challenges that affect the beneficiaries of our programs. Not only are they adequately educated and trained, but they are a team who have a love and vision for what we do. This contributes greatly to the success of our programs and our organisation.

Shiloh House Crisis Centre for Women
Shiloh House Crisis Centre began in 2006 as a result of our ‘Women of Worth’ street ministries during which UCEC came across an alarmingly high number of abused women and children in need of refuge.
Shiloh House provides support and counselling services while serving as a safe haven for beneficiaries to deal with their circumstances while living a dignified life. The is a place for temporary relief where victims of gender-based violence, human trafficking and other forms of abuse stay until they can be resettled sustainably. Beneficiaries are provided with accommodation, food, clothing & toiletries, counselling, a care plan and referrals to specialised or long term services.
Over and above these services, they are also assisted with health needs, a care plan – personal development, typing of CV’s and applications for jobs, ID documents and grants.
Hope Lives Here
Hope Lives Here is a fundraising campaign for Shiloh House crisis centre for abused women. We are raising funds to purchase a property large enough to accommodate approximately 20 women and children who comes to us seeking help. The main objective for this centre is to provide protection, response, shelter and self-empowerment services to women, and children who are affected by conflict, domestic and gender-based violence, human trafficking and abuse including unaccompanied, separated and missing children and other vulnerable persons.
