Umoja Community Mosaic is a growing Calgary non-profit organization.

Soccer Without Boundaries was founded in 2010 as a drop-in soccer club to help immigrant and low-income children get involved in their community. Now known as Umoja Community Mosaic, we have grown and introduced programs like our culturally appropriate food pantry and delivery, after-school programs, tutoring, and anti-racism and inclusion initiatives.
