Peter O'Neal founded the United African American Community Center UAACC, a non-profit community based NGO, in 1991 for the purpose of providing programs and projects for the enrichment of the Arusha community, both urban and rural and also to promote closer cultural ties to communities in America and around the world.

The name was later amended to United African Alliance Community Center to better reflect the more global focus of the center's concentration and outreach. The centre grows organically always changing and striving to meet the needs of the community.

The emphasis on youth and their issues is a key point in the operations of the centre with a focus on their challenges as well as their talents.

WAMATA Arusha provides a range of services, from supporting those who have been widowed or orphaned by AIDS to providing programmes that provide AIDS orphans with real-world work skills.
