Our Vision

The Vision of Uzazi Village is born out of the community itself, by the community, for the people of the community

The Begining

Uzazi Village had its initial community meeting on December 9, 2011 at the Kansas City Health Department. Community members were invited to share their vision of what community-based maternity care would look like.

Shared Vision

From this shared vision, the work began to form and take shape.  Since the Community Visioning took place we have continued the work by

  • creating a board
  • creating a nonprofit organization
  • holding a fundraiser
  • building community partnerships
  • writing grants
  • creating programming
  • creating this website
  • inviting members to join
