Our mission is to create a new generation of uBuntuKeepers to be the
custodians, the living examples and messengers of this, our most
precious spiritual heritage. Our ideal is to inculcate a living spirit of
uBuntu in he hearts and minds of every South African learner in every
school in the country. To claim uBuntu back as a part and parcel
of who we are and how we live… to build the South Africa of all our
dreams...

Create an uBuntu Club in your school!


uBuntu is one of Africa’s oldest and most precious life philosophies, yet few know its origin, true principles, values or how it works.


What does it mean when Archbishop Desmond Tutu tells us that the highest praise that an African would give someone is to recognize his/her uBuntu?


What does it mean when one says “Hey, so and so has uBuntu” and that our lives here in Africa are co-created through uBuntu?


The uBuntu Keepers Program for Learners is part of a larger Civil Society Initiative by Humanity’s Team South Africa and the Foundation talkUBUNTU whose purpose it is to embody the timeless truth of our
Oneness (uBuntu – I Am Because We Are).

Johan Allers, Founder talkUBUNTU

uBuntu is "a way of being" and a conciousness that compells us to always strive towards our highest potential. It reminds us that we are one big, beautiful and wonderfully diverse family. To inculcate a spirit and awareness of our inter-connectivity and ultimate interdependance in the hearts of all our people, especially our children, is our goal.

Make uBuntu a part of your classroom and your school and help us to co-create a society of compassion, dignity and respect, a place where everyone can achieve their greatest potential.

Tom Johnson, Director Slypsteen School of Excellence

uBuntu is a philosophy which I so wish to become a way of life for every person in the world. This ancient African “way of being” has the potential to heal all the ills of our modern society and to bring about positive social cohesion. It can restore the dignity of/in our families, have a positive impact in society and eventually in all spheres of life where people meet, work, serve etc.

Help us to bring the spirit of uBuntu to your school!

 

talkUBUNTU Clubs


Your school is invited to start your own talkUBUNTU Club or
Association – not unlike a debating- or theatre association.

The talkUBUNTU School club is run by learners and supported by the school’s
Life Orientation teacher and/or school councilors. The project forms part of
the school’s curriculum for Life Orientation and complements the school’s
LO activities and programs.


The project is based on a number of integrated components:


UBuntuKeepers Course for High Schools
An introductory as well as specialized course for high school learners
about the origin, values, principles and application – the living of –
uBuntu.
