The Swahili word for Unity
Our Mission: To Empower Refugee Women
Donations support the teachers in our classrooms, providing materials to our students, and interpretation services!
WHO WE ARE
Meaning Unity in Swahili, Umoja Abq is an organization driven by a single passion; to improve refugee women's lives. We believe that every refugee deserves respect and support whether they have just arrived in the U.S or have been here for 10 years.
What we're currently working on
We're currently partnering with St. Timothy's Church and community volunteers to provide refugee women with classroom instruction for the written test taken at the MVD, as well as assistance with navigating the MVD system to obtain their drivers license
COMPUTER LITERACY CLASSES & ESL
Working with volunteers, we have established Computer Literacy classes for any level of ability as well as ESL classes.
WOMEN'S HEALTH CLASS
Partnering with St. Timothy's Church, we hold classes twice a month about women's health and family wellness. We have brought speakers in from Black Health NM and UNM Health
