UNITED KINGDOM JARRA ASSOCIATION

WE SUPPORT

Go to EDUCATION

EDUCATION

Provide educational support and training to members on contemporary social issues such as crime prevention, terrorism, social welfare, religion, financial management, career advice (for children) by engaging experts to advice on these issues as well as supporting them. We can surely impact a generation.

Go to HEALTHCARE

HEALTHCARE

It is often argued that the purpose of human life is to serve and show compassion and the will to help other. Alone we can do so little but together we can do so much. What more can a people give back to their community of origin than to help care for the sick, concern for elderly and compassion for the young

Go to COMMUNITY

COMMUNITY

We provide and assist in the provision of education, training, healthcare projects and all the necessary support designed to relieve financial hardship and enable individuals to generate a sustainable income and be self-sufficient and live healthily. We are very much engage in community development.

Go to WELFARE

WELFARE

We support in all cases, the UKJA provide welfare support to other charities and individuals. For many of those who had historically supported welfare programs in the broadest sense, it is perfectly reasonable to enact legislation in which poor people were the objects of efforts to assist them.

Organise educational programs such as quiz competitions, writing competitions, online study groups with expert tutors etc for children particularly those of members in key subject areas of Maths, English, the Sciences. A committee of experts to help develop and monitor it
