Umoja are a small grassroots NGO, based in Arusha, Northern Tanzania. The Umoja Youth Empowerment Centre gives young disadvantaged people the opportunity to gain important qualifications. We offer vocational training, such as tailoring as well as academic subjects such as languages. We believe that education is fundamental in relieving poverty. In addition we will be tutoring Primary and Secondary students as they face their critical exams in the state school system. In this way, we will be ensuring that more children finish their schooling and gain an education.
Students are also active in workshops, debates and student run campaigns, tackling issues such as HIV/Aids, environmental and global issues. This holistic approach will empower students to be independent, not only by finding meaningful employment, but also by creating positive change in their communities.
