Economic Empowerment is one of the 100 pillars. We are striving to strengthen this aspect of our services. Economics is crucial to the health and wellness of any community. With that in mind, we are working to develop the Ujamaa Project. Ujamaa is one of the principals of Kwanzaa. "Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together."
