Ubuntu Education Fund
Ubuntu Education Fund is a non-profit organisation providing over 40,000 orphaned, vulnerable and HIV positive children in Port Elizabeth, South Africa with life-saving health services and vital educational resources.
The philosophy of Ubuntu is a universal bond of sharing that connects all of humanity—I am because you are. The Ubuntu Model has become a blueprint for organizations around the world that strive for culturally appropriate, community-based development. Ubuntu’s child-centred approach highlights the difference between merely touching a child’s life versus fundamentally changing it.
Below are some inspiring links demonstrating the impact Ubuntu is making in their communities in Port Elizabeth.
