Aden Date is the Business & Innovation Coordinator at Umoja. If you’re not sure what that is, don’t worry, he isn’t sure either! Aden hails from the sunny shores of Perth, Western Australia, and has an eclectic professional background ranging from counselling, through to lecturing, and management consulting. He came to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro and see the Serengeti, but stayed for Umoja. At Umoja, he helps run the social enterprise programme and also works with Umoja’s staff on other strategic projects.
“At Umoja you feel so welcome, and feel like you’re making an impact, every day. It is a place where every single person is grateful to be there. I used to be like Garfield. Now I love Mondays!”
