Education can transform communities one child at a time.
What We Do
Umoja is Kiswahili for unity. Our work is built upon a foundation of people who come together from different faith communities and cultures to respond to the urgent needs of the world’s most vulnerable children.
Orphaned or vulnerable, elementary-aged children receive daily meals and other critical support to keep them in school.
Child-headed households receive additional support.
Investing in Students
Youth receive tuition support to enable them to access high school education.
After graduation, support continues at trade school or for qualifying students at the college or university level.
Children & youth are active in our boys and girls empowerment programs, which serve as guides for children lacking parental guidance.
