Ugunja Community Resource Centre

 

The Ugunja Community Resource Centre (UCRC) is a  Kenyan non-governmental organisation in Ugunja District, Siaya County in Western Kenya region.   The UCRC aims to equip community members with the skills and resources necessary to combat poverty, hunger, poor health, gender inequality and lack of educational opportunities. 

 

Established in 1988, today UCRC acts as an umbrella organisation for more than 60 local community groups including women, children, youth, farmers and people with disabilities.  The services that UCRC provides include a health centre, a home based health care program, sustainable agriculture training, a library, computer training, a vulnerable youth women and children program and a microfinance cooperative. The success of these programs is attributed to working closely with the community to intimately understand their needs and earn their trust.  For more information about us please visit www.ugunja.org
