Westlake is hidden behind business and upmarket residential complexes where WUCT acts as the hub of the 12000 residents of the community. In Rhoda Kadalie’s words, “WUCT is evidence of a community taking its destiny into its own hands”.
The WUCT project addresses issues of extreme poverty, ill health, early childhood development, unemployment and social issues through 3 arms:
- Emmanuel Educare pre-school catering for up to 210 children
- Home-Based Care (HBC) programme supporting 350 people, with the carers conducting on average 2000 home visits per month
- Community Advice Office provides the community with pamphlets and information and serves, on average, 400 people per month.
