The Urban Micro Business Centre (UMBC) is a concept for an integrated approach to livelihood, skill, and entrepreneurship. We are a destination for opportunities, support, linkages, information and sustainable ideas that empower urban slum dwellers. We exist as a hub for businesses seeking skilled and semi skilled labour trained or mobilised through the UMBC, and who can be linked with interested urban poor beneficiaries. We are ambitious to act as a platform for integrated community development, and to be facilitators of experiences of lasting economic and personal empowerment for our students, staff and community.
