The Ujamaa Empowerment Project
(Ujamaa) seeks to empower young people by providing transformative experiences that come from helping improve the lives of people living in difficult circumstances due to the devastating effects of poverty, the lack of access to clean water, education, and adequate medical resources or information. By so doing, Ujamaa hopes to help create a generation of leaders dedicated to philanthropy and community service, both at home and abroad. Ujamaa sponsors two programs: (1) the Global Scholars for Change and (2) Cambodia Smiles.
Global Scholars for Change
Ujamaa's 2014 Global Scholars for Change Program is scheduled to take place Summer 2014 in Ghana, Africa. Participants in the program will be given the opportunity to participate in several service learning projects, for example: (1) teaching English at a primary/secondary school; (2) working at local orphanage and school on infrastructure projects; (3) conducting HIV/AIDS outreach education and delivering food and other life sustaining goods to families whose lives have been devastated by the AIDS epidemic in Africa; and (4) working with community/village groups on clean water, sustainable agriculture and/or micro-lending projects.
We look forward to partnering with you to provide young people with empowering experiences that will transform the way they view themselves and imbue them with the knowledge that they have the power to positively impact the world around them.
