UFD stands for Ujamaa Fraternal Dynasty, a.k.a., O'BEAMMA, the Official Black Elite Ambitious Money Making Association. We were founded on July 29, 2008, by Mfalme (Don X) Sikivu. We are a mutual self-Improvement fraternity of like minds, both men and women, joined together in brotherhood and sisterhood to achieve mutual success and prosperity. We are devoted to the socio-economic empowerment of Black and disadvantaged people regardless of race, color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.
We are organizing to place more Wealth and Power into the hands of those of Us who, due to structural racism and wealth inequality in this country, have it the least but need it the most. UFD is a stepping stone to a better, more productive life but only for those of Us willing to work hard together, in a spirit of harmony, combining and coordinating Our knowledge, efforts, skills, talents, contacts, money, and other resources to accomplish Our Mission and Primary Aim. We invest in and support one another. UFD's philosophy and practice, which was developed by Our leader and founder, is called Conscious Money. This philosophy is summed up by Our Motto: We all succeed by helping each other succeed.
Part of the Mission of UFD i s to build a trillion dollar people's movement of a million or more of Us. To do so, We are going all out to make sure each of Us is financially secured; that none of Us or Our families want for anything. This requires that We each work to become an asset toUFD by pushing and challenging Ourselves and each other to do better, be better, and know better.
