Celebrating 25 years. A generation of change that transformed a community forever.

determine her future.

Poverty is Complex.

The world’s poor face challenges that have deep-rooted causes, often spanning generations.

But the cycle is breakable.

We have created a pathway out of poverty that guides children from their first steps to their first jobs.


Since the pandemic began, we’ve endured some of the highest death rates in the world, drought, economic collapse, and violent political unrest. Our COVID response is saving lives. Our cradle to career model is protecting pathways out of poverty.

Supporting Ubuntu through food, United States

“Greatness is not what you have, it is what you give.” Giving my talents in efforts to raise funds for the beautiful people of South Africa was truly a pleasure, blessing, and an honor. After all, Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu. I am because you are!

Oyanda Circle
Supports Ubuntu through movement

I wanted to connect and celebrate the gift of yoga since the country has been through so much since COVID-19 started. Giving back is part of my yoga lifestyle, which is why I decided to host my International Day of Yoga livestream as a fundraiser for Ubuntu.

Gives monthly, United States

"Ubuntu understands that a child’s path from poverty is not just about education. Their holistic model is one any donor should feel confident getting behind. It’s what inspired me to get more involved and give monthly."
