Ubuntu is a centuries-old African way of life.

The basis is the conviction:


Umuntu Ngumntu Ngabantu:

“I am because we are and we are because I am.”

This wisdom and view is the basis of our organization. Ubuntu for Africa is a registered NGO and organizes internships and volunteer services in Hout Bay (Cape Town) and in Germany. The difference to many other organizations is that we not only proclaim the Ubuntu philosophy, but also live it by looking for and promoting projects that carry this philosophy. We strive for better education and better social conditions in Hout Bay’s township Imizamo Yethu in South Africa. On the one hand, we offer structural assistance by financially supporting smaller and clearer projects by residents for residents. On the other hand, we offer voluntary services and internships in manageable school and social projects with appropriate help for the people living there. The projects we fund help to support children, parents, adolescents and families in their everyday life, e.g. by providing school material, scholarships, promoting special talents and skills of the children or supporting families with their daily needs. With your donation, but also through your voluntary service or through your internship, you can contribute to improving the school education as well as the living conditions of the children and young people and families from the townships. In the fight against poverty, better teaching conditions, qualified training and a safe and satisfied everyday life are essential.
