Our Story

It is incredible how one small idea can grow into something truly special. Prójekt Ubuntu is rooted in the belief that we all have an inherent responsibility to make a meaningful difference in our communities. With a variety of active projects and a large volunteer staff, we harness our skills and resources to successfully achieve our goals. Volunteers from all over the world join this project. Service to society and volunteering gives the unique experience of directing one’s own energy in a positive direction. While developing one’s own potential and skills, one also does something useful for both communities.

Through the projects at Prójekt Ubuntu, we are able to facilitate a process where young people can develop themselves, through service to others. Many young people from privileged backgrounds have the education and resources; but not necessarily, the life experience. The poorer community may not have the education and resources, but one can learn through life experience and the wisdom that is there. This organization works with a hand up rather than a hand out approach, which means – we support the people that are leading in their communities, that have the knowledge and the know-how and wisdom to solve their own challenges – they often just lack the right support and resource to do what they need to do.

 

Together with the project directors and coordinators, you will decide upon the role and project you will be working on during your internship. You will have an opportunity to use your initiative and to work within a community, you will learn from the children and from their carers, you will learn about the African culture and community development. Since our founding in 2000, we have been proud to witness how our activities have benefitted the community and beyond.

Our Mission

It is so easy to fall into a pattern of apathy as we go through our lives. Our organization was born out of a commitment to stop passing over the real issues of society, and deal with them head on. We have set out to aid those who need it most. Prójekt Ubuntu is here to help, and we believe that change is possible when we put our hearts and minds to it.
