Women's Empowerment Sewing Program - Tanzania

United Caribbean Trust is a faith-based organization dedicated to empowering women to free themselves from poverty. Through our partnerships with Christian organization such as Stonecroft we are looking to provide small loans, business training, mentorship and microenterprise services to help people living in poverty establish their own businesses. By supporting our clients, we enable them to provide for their families with dignity and send their children to school.

It is our desire to reach out to the poor in a way that demonstrates God’s love while empowering the needy to free themselves from poverty.

Service to the poor is not only of benefit to those being served (and to those who are serving), but it brings honor to God.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. Proverbs 14:31 NIV

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 NIV

United Caribbean Trust - Letter from a Tanzanian Sewing Student

My name is Sella Yona,I am so glad that I am one of the women who is privileged to be here in the sewing project where we are learning how to make outfit free of charge, now I feel like God has a purpose for even the poor people like me, I can now see that I am on the way towards helping take care of my old mother and paying the school fees for my young brothers and sisters. I count it as a favor which has come in due season from the Lord. Soon after I have known how to make the outfit for men and women I hope I will be able to make money to support my family.

Last year a new opportunity developed that enable UCT to purchase a property in Mbeya. The 3 year old property is located within a walled enclosure and covers 2,450sq ft ground space, it is large enough to become the town church we have been praying about. It will seat over 300 people African style.
