Umgeni Community Empowerment Centre
This public benefits organization empowers individuals through care and counselling by hosting various talks and activities that empower people to become contributory citizens to our society.
Empowerment for those individuals that have lost hope in their lives or can’t find a way to rebuild themselves. The services that they offer is not subject to race, gender, religion or age; and empowerment of people stretches from domestic violence victims to victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse, to the unemployed, sick and suicidal.
There is a word that perfectly characterize the good works of the UCEC which is Mudita. Mudita means finding ‘joy in the good fortune of others.’ UCEC works overtime so that people in our Durban community are educated and empowered to obtain a second chance in society.
Their passion comes from knowing that destitute individuals are being helped and empowered to live better lives.
Samuels Service Centre finds joy in what the UCEC is doing for others and we have chosen to help and assist them in order to see that the good fortune onto others that they give spreads across Durban to make our city more joyous.
