Umoja Partnership, formerly known as Global Interfaith Partnership, is a partnership of many faiths, from different cultures, on two continents, united in our service to change lives by keeping children in school.

Our Vision:
Transforming communities one child at a time.

In Chulaimbo, Kenya, at least 20% of the school-aged children have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

The Umoja Project has developed a compassionate and comprehensive network of care to respond to the needs of these children, ensuring that they stay in school and perform to the best of their ability.

Congregations, schools and families from Indiana and the Chulaimbo region of western Kenya are responding to the needs of Chulaimbo’s vulnerable children. Through our shared efforts, a new generation of community leaders is emerging.

We believe that education is the key to a better future for Chulaimbo’s orphans and vulnerable children and their communities. We create programs that help students overcome the many obstacles that affect their ability to stay in school and perform their best.

Our success is based on the strong relationships developed as we walk alongside one another. We have bridged the differences between our cultures and the differences between the many faith traditions we represent. We are partners who listen to one another, learn from each other and work together.
