Umoja: Transforming Communities [Guides]
Umoja (Swahili for ‘togetherness’), is a church and community initiative. It helps church leaders and their congregations work together with the local community to bring about positive change for the whole community. Umoja does this by helping these local institutions build on the resources and skills they already have. It is a process that inspires and equips local people with a vision for determining their own future with their own resources. The Umoja process is based on more than 20 years of experience of working with churches and communities throughout Africa and Asia.
Umoja consists of two main guides, one for facilitators and one for coordinators. The Umoja Facilitator’s Guide contains Bible studies, activities, energizers, tools, advice and a step-by-step process to help a church and community become inspired and start working for transformation in their community. The Umoja Coordinator’s Guide provides everything that an organization or church needs to know to start and manage an Umoja program across a number of local communities.
