Umoja Tanzania

At Umoja, we believe that young people have a right to lead lives free of poverty, abuse, and exploitation.

For a young person to thrive they need a holistic education, physical and mental health, and good livelihoods. At Umoja, we provide these services to vulnerable Tanzanian youth who we want to not only survive, but thrive. We provide the freedom and security needed to become the authors of their own lives.

We achieve this through three key programme areas:

Education

We provide a variety of educational options to children and young adults, both in-house and through scholarships. Education is vital for young people to achieve their goals, become independant and rise out of poverty. Educational opportunities are offered through our Foundation, ISC and Outplacement Programmes. 

Health & Welfare

To ensure our youth transition into adulthood safely and empowered, we provide a range of medical and psychosocial support and extra curricular activities, including the arts and sports. Our health and welfare support runs throughout all our programmes but specifically the Foundation, Fikia and YES! Programmes. 

Livelihoods

Our goal is for all our graduates to be self-sufficient, employed and leading a dignified life. Umoja graduates are then equipped to support future generations, thus breaking cycles of poverty. We start this support early on in the Foundation Programme, but more specifically in the Outplacement and Social Enterprise Programmes.
