“Umoja is an appreciated youth organization as it supports vulnerable Tanzanian youth attain their goals. I am proud working with the Umoja team as Social Worker as this is my dream career and enables me to provide social welfare services. I feel happy observing Tanzanian young people are empowered.
A Social Worker has an important role who helps children/ youth, women and the whole society creating self awareness, receiving their rights as well as solving their problems. A social worker acts as an Advocate and Mediator within the Community. Wishing Umoja lasts forever in its endeavours!"
