About United African Alliance Community Centre UAACC:
Pete O'Neal founded the United African American Community Centre UAACC, a non-profit community based NGO, in 1991 for the purpose of providing programs and projects for the enrichment of the Arusha community, both urban and rural and also to promote closer cultural ties to communities in America and around the world.
The name was later amended to United African Alliance Community Centre to better reflect the more global focus of the centre’s concentration and outreach.
We have several ongoing, daily programs which target the youth in our community including computer classes, art and craft classes, music, history, health and nutrition, sports and yoga as well as English classes, fashion design and tailoring and modelling. There are HIV/AIDS awareness, debates and outreach programs that encourage expression through the arts such as Community Theatre, song and poetry.
There is a resident ngoma (traditional dance) group, the FURAHIA Ngoma Group.
There is a very active recording studio, Peace Power Productions and there are basic video and photography clubs.
UAACC is based in Imbaseni Village in the heart of Wameru homeland outside of Arusha, Tanzania. We are situated between two majestic mountains...Mt. Kilimanjaro , the tallest mountain in Africa and Mt. Meru, the third tallest!
