Volunteering in Umoja Foundation Group.

Volunteer pay a very important role at Umoja Foundation Group, initiating wonderful skills and energy to our organization making difference to the lives of many.At Umoja Foundation Group we understand the international volunteer program as a method of awareness and learning to break down typecast and prejudiced ideas collaborating directly with the local project,in a respectful way working as a team dialoguing and internalizing the ways of doing the local culture, the volunteer becomes an agent of Change upon their return.To this we look for passionate, committed people, willing to learn, open minded with critical vision and who want to collaborate from humility, empathy and with ease of adaptation to change.We are a project that is founded, maintained and advances all year round with motivated workers in the area who are observing some problems present in their society, decide to take action to change it. Consequently the work of volunteers in the field focuses on support and reinforcement tasks to those currently being developed.The main purpose is to know about their reality and accept the difference, breaking apart with ethnocentric vision so common in western culture. Umoja Foundation Group proposes volunteering as a means for people to broaden their vision so that when they return they can continue to work on their day to day basis to fight against global structural inequality.
