Our July charity – Umoja UK
Since 2009 Umoja has been providing vital education and support to disadvantaged young people in Arusha, Tanzania. Their innovative, holistic education programme fosters healthy, safe, engaged young people who are able to learn and thrive. Umoja helps these young people every step of the way into employment, to give them the best possible start in their adult lives.
About Charity of the Month at St Mark’s
Charity of the Month was created as a way of coming together as a church community to raise money for good causes. The scheme provides ongoing support to certain organisations, and each year members of our congregation are also invited to suggest charities that they would like to promote.
