UBUNTU TRUST NPO

Skills development means little to women who cannot feed their families, so it is essential that any training is directly linked to real job opportunities.

 

Ubuntu Trust Registration: 089-081 NPO

 

Philosophy

The concept of Ubuntu, often understood to mean “I am because you are” was expanded to include the optimal connection and relationship between the planet and its people, supported by the principles of non-violence (“ahimsa”) and respect for all sentient life. True accord, healing and harmony can only fully emerge when all beings embrace in one compassionate circle of life within the spirit of ubuntu.

Objective of the Trust 

Ubuntu Trust was established primarily to promote the concept of Ubuntu practically in South Africa through specific projects focused on upskilling individuals to enable them to heal, earn and contribute.
The first of these projects, our flagship Ubuntu Touch Project, is constructed with the purpose of providing skills development in the wellness sector to disadvantaged South African women, such as:
(a) Providing training at no cost, the training would be at various levels depending on the ability of the individuals.
(b) Placing the graduates trained into internships, jobs and possible start-up business opportunities.
Other Projects include:
(c) Ubuntu Chef: Community Chef Training Project
(d) Ubuntu Breathe Immune Support Project
(e) Ubuntu Diabetes Reversal Project

Ancillary Objective

Acting as a Broad-based Ownership Scheme as envisaged by the BEE Codes and consequently ensuring that the beneficiaries of the trust at all times are at least 85% black individuals and 50% black women.
