Umoja’s Core Values

Umoja is family centred, meaning we believe in the nurturing power of the family for children’s growth and development. As we expand, additional family-style children’s homes, with shared living areas, will be built for up to 10 children–each with a House Mother and House Aunty to care for the children.

Umoja is child orientated. Umoja Children’s Village – Ukunda will give children the opportunity to reach their full potential by offering programs that meet their physical, social, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs.
