Welcome to Utulivu Women's Group PDF Print E-mail




‘Utulivu’ is a Kiswahili word meaning ‘PATIENCE’. We work with women, children and senior citizens with the support of men with the view of integrating into the wider community while celebrating diversity as we promote healthy living and strong family relationships.


Launched in July 2004 as a women’s community group, Utulivu Women’s Group is currently a registered charity in Berkshire covering Reading, Bracknell, Slough, West Berkshire, Wokingham and the surrounding areas. Utulivu aims to engage women, children and senior citizens from minority ethnic communities throughout Berkshire.


The activities and events are geared towards alleviating loneliness, isolation, depression and social exclusion usually experienced by these groups of people. We have a passion for healthy strong family relationship as we believe it is the backbone for a healthy and wealthy society.


Utulivu’s one clear cut motto is; ‘WE WILL NEVER LET IT GO UNTIL OUR GOOD GETS BETTER AND OUT BETTER GETS BEST’. We believe in the saying that ‘coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success’.




To be a catalyst for positive change in the self, individual families and the wider community therefore community integration.
