The Ujamaa Centre is an interface between socially engaged biblical and theological scholars, organic intellectuals, and local communities of the poor, working-class, and marginalised. Together we use biblical and theological resources for individual and social transformation.
Welcome to our website! On this site you will find information on what the Ujamaa Centre is about, our history, our commitments, our current organisational structure, our programmes and campaigns, our resources, our partners, and how you can contact us.
