The Urban Micro Business Centre (UMBC) is a destination for opportunities, support, linkages and information that empower urban slum dwellers.  We operate by an integrated approach to enhancing livelihood, skill, and entrepreneurship to facilitate local solutions to the challenges that impact our community. 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 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.
