Our goal is to help Africana (Black) women in particular develop self-sufficiency through creative entrepreneurship by working together. The spaces we create- our Boutique, Farm and Marketplace, are places where women can create, market and sell their wares and share expertise with our neighbors in a healthy and vibrant environment.
As one of America’s Most Livable Cities, we have work to do. Just as the originator’s of the fair trade movement were stirred to open up economic channels after witnessing the hard work and creative endeavors of our international brothers and sisters and seeing them not receive their fair share, Ujamaa was formed similarly to make a difference. Fair Trade is just as relevant in impacting poverty in the United States as it is across the waters in foreign countries. A local woman learning how to help herself helps her children and her entire family. Multiple women working together transforms the community. Ujamaa Collective is doing its best to combine cultural ethics with cooperative business practices to help lift as we climb.
