United Women of East Africa Support Team (UWEAST)
We strive to be the force for culturally competent health services, education and advocacy for the well-being of the East African community:
We offer economic and educational empowerment youth programs, tutoring, fellowships, and adult learning through entrepreneurship and financial literacy and responsibility interwoven throughout.
WHAT GUIDES US
We envision empowered East African Women who are able a positively influence the health and education of her family and community.
WHAT WE OFFER
The UWEAST coalition is one of 16 selected from almost 250 to participate in Making Connections, funded by Movember and led by Prevention Institute, to elevate community wellbeing for East African men and boys in San Diego.
Collective Voices is a partnership with The AjA Project to engage young East African women to communicate themes of identity and contemporary women’s issues through the photography and narrative with techniques learned in the classroom.
About 25,000 San Diego girls are served by troops, and Scout Troop 4307 is just one example of how the refugee families are tailoring U.S. customs for their mostly American-born children. In addition to learning about their heritage, the girls do common Girl Scout activities.
