Projects & Activities
The activities of Uzima are carried out in Canada and internationally. Fundraising activities and training of volunteers are mainly executed in Canada. Uzima's activities in developing countries are focus on empowering women and men in the areas of human rights, health and education.
In May 2013 we launched an annual fundraising event to raise funds to support grassroots women groups in developing countries. The funds have helped women groups to start community projects supporting women and their families to improve their livelihoods.
