The Centre assists young adults who are unable to continue formal education (due to poverty), by placing them into mainstream education or meaningful employment. The SMEC Foundation donated over $4,500 to the Umoja Centre to employ a local teacher for one year. As the Umoja Centre relies on volunteers outside of Africa, the funding will ensure a longer term solution and offer employment opportunities within the local community. The Centre now has 80 students who are the direct beneficiaries of the project.
