TRANSFORMING THE KIVU COMMUNITY

The union for progress.inc (UFP) has been working in the Kivu community since 2011 to provide and help the community to elevate on its feet. The following information shows what the we are currently doing in the community.

SKILLS TRAINING

From 2017 to 2018, we increased the number of skilled man and woman in the kivu community by 5%. This has helped the community increase the number of its working people by 2%. The kivu community benefits from their contributions.
The kivu community relies heavily on its man power. Since technology and resources are scarce, we have developed and organized formal trades that will help people better maximize the resources in their environment. Read more to see how we do it.

HEALTH

From 2017 to 2018, we worked with local doctors and nurses to increase health care access. We also trained young woman into nurses through our SKILLS TRAINING programing. We hosted events in the local community to raise awarensess of proper health care. This helped reduced the number of people that got sick by 9%.
Health is critical in every community. Our major focus on health has been mostly prevention. The best way to solve any problem is to eliminate it. Health problems cannot be eliminated so another semilar approach is to prevent them. We host workshops on self health care every month in the kivu community. We post posters and reinforce this through our Education and Skils Training Program. Read more to see how we do it.
