Donating to Umoja means

Maximum Local Impact

Many donors assume that by contributing to large organizations, they are making the biggest impact. By choosing to give to a smaller, local organization like Umoja Community Mosaic, donors actively enrich their community and can witness their dollars changing childrens’ lives.

From a Soccer Program to a

Neighbourhood Movement

Founded in 2010 as a drop-in soccer club for newcomers and low-income children, Umoja Community Mosaic has become an organization that provides opportunities and support to Calgary’s underserved.

Soccer

Youth and children from over 30 different countries come together year round for skill development and to share in the magic of chasing a ball around a pitch.

Executive Director & Founder

Jean Claude Munyezamu

Jean Claude Munyezamu is a Rwandan Canadian who escaped the genocide in 1994 and volunteered in refugee camps in Somalia and Sudan before moving to Canada in 1998.

In 2010, learning that children in his neighbourhood were getting into trouble, Jean Claude took some soccer balls to a nearby green space on a Saturday morning.  This kicked off the start of Soccer Without Boundaries. He continues to nurture community relationships with each participating child and parent, while directing our growing organization.
