Let us build a better tomorrow for your child today because:
A large percentage of Afrikan children attending public schools finish high school unable to read, write or compute adequately.
A large percentage of Afrikan children finish school with no positive concept of themselves.
A large percentage of Afrikan children finish school with no sense of productive values.
A large percentage of Afrikan children finish school without the encouragement to further develop to their fullest potential.
UJAMAA SHULE was founded to provide an educational institution that would ensure Afrikan children the development of a strong positive self-image, a sense of values, and the achievement of academic excellence. UJAMAA’s program provides for positive approaches to meeting life’s challenges. It is our purpose to continue to develop the total being, to help each child reach his or her ultimate goals and develop to their highest potential.

THEORY OF UJAMAA SHULE
The basic concept of UJAMAA (Co-Operative Economics and Family Hood) originally evolved out a critical need to seriously analyze the then existing educational program (of mis-educating) within the D.C. Public School System. In a very realistic and positive fashion, there was a need to establish and Independent Afrikan Institution, which would, in fact, address the needs and aspirations of young Afrikan children suffering within the confines of a decaying urban environment. The kind of education that was being taught in the public schools was of such a poor quality that it, in effect, perpetuated a crippling system of mis-education and failure for our children: therefore, it became absolutely necessary to pursue a definite course of action that would, in actuality introduce a program that placed specific emphasis on the cultural as well as the academic aspects of Afrikan education.
The schools, in effect, were committing educational and cultural genocide against the youth of our communities. Understanding that we as black people here in America are all essentially of Afrikan descent, Ujamaa introduced many facets of Afrikan culture that were actually put into practice this we feel is a valid and wholesome approach to properly educate and hopefully reshape the minds of our young Afrikan children.
