Through UCBC, I learned that . . . humility is the key to whatever you go on to do. I learned this from UCBC staff. I took this example of humility and incorporate it into my life and work today. I feel very hopeful that one day the vision of UCBC will be accomplished and I pray God uses me to expand this vision. I want to be a source of blessings to many and to use my knowledge to help all those who are in need of my service."

The way I was trained at UCBC with the philosophy of ‘being transformed to transform’ motivates and inspires me to go and serve my community so that those who are traumatized can be healed. The community we had at UCBC where we shared and accompanied one another created an environmentthat transformed me and made me feel compassion for those who are suffering."

MENTORING WOMEN FOR LEADERSHIP
Through the Women's Voices mentorship program, mentors invested themselves to support and train me until I made it. Now I have influence not only in [the] UCBC community, but in the [wider] community of Beni."
