About Us


Who are we?

SAMA is a charitable organisation established in 2019 by a group of teachers in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Its mission is to meet the needs and promote the interests of the local community by providing a safe space where individuals can seek help and guidance.

The organisation aims to establish quality education and tuition for the community, creating a hub where everyone can meet and build connections despite cultural differences.

SAMA offers a range of classes and opportunities for individuals to enhance their skills, such as languages or digital skills, and provides support to those in need of guidance and assistance in dealing with issues relating to utility bills, form completion, and more. The organisation is open Monday to Friday and has dedicated multilingual-speaking staff to cater to the needs of the local community.

SAMA’s SAMA Academy project runs national curriculum classes in core subjects, Islamic Studies, and ESOL skills for adults.
It also has a women’s support group designed to enable women to come together to meet for a chat. SAMA is working closely with NGOs and organisations in the area to support the community.

Overall, SAMA aims to support the local community and promote social cohesion by providing activities that improve knowledge, skills, health, and well-being. Its services are a practical expression of faith and not solely to advance Islam, but to serve the needs of the local community. SAMA is a part of society and aims to uplift the community.
