The president of the U.S.-based non-profit organization Unlimited Cancer Care International (UCCI), Agivert Jackson, has urged managers of non-profits and non-governmental organizations to prioritize education to enhance their operational knowledge. “Knowledge, relative to one’s arena of operation, is crucial for the success of their non-profits and non-governmental organizations,” she emphasized.

Ms. Jackson, highlighting the adage that “knowledge is power,” stressed the importance of being well-informed to maintain confidence and control in their respective fields. “Non-profits and non-governmental organizations, regardless of your area of operation and commitment, are not a walk in the park. To succeed and thrive, education is core and key,” she asserted.

This call to action came after Ms. Jackson graduated with a Master of Science in Management: Non-profit and Association Management from the University of Maryland Global Campus in Baltimore, USA. “My motivation for taking this course stemmed from my resolve to take my non-profit organization, Unlimited Cancer Care International, UCCI, to the apex,” she explained.

Ms. Jackson pointed out the intense competitiveness of the modern world, stating that managers of non-profits need to further their education to stay competitive. “Following the setup of my 501(c)3 non-profit focused on cancers, I realized that to effectively run this all-important non-profit, I had to educate myself in this field to match up with new research presenting different perspectives on this deadly disease.”

Having acquired this advanced knowledge, Ms. Jackson feels more confident in her ability to lead UCCI and benefit those served by the organization. She announced that her team would be moving to Ghana this year to launch a significant educational campaign on cancer and its effects on society. Under the theme “Unlimited Cancer Care International Conference 2024,” the campaign will take the team to Ada in the Greater Accra Region, Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, and Sandema in the Builsa North Municipality of the Upper East Region.

Ms. Jackson assured that the team would donate educational and medical supplies to students and youth patients in these communities. “These donations are also intended to help alleviate the excruciating pains and financial strain cancer puts on families so their wards can concentrate on their education,” she said.

She highlighted the immense financial burden of cancer treatment, which often forces families to divert resources from their children’s education. “These donations, which are our widow’s mite, we envisage, would go a long way to ease the financial burdens on parents and guardians,” she hoped.

Since its inception, Unlimited Cancer Care International has partnered with institutions and organizations in the United States to support cancer patients and has made significant donations to hospitals and individuals.
