Ubuntu Education Fund 2012 Annual Report
Should your birthplace determine your future?
86% of children are on track to succeed after 4 years in Ubuntuâ€™s programs.
Dear Friends, Over the last 14 years, we have watched a project launched in a broom closet grow into a world-class institution operating within a community where few other resources exist. Although Ubuntu Education Fund provides complex, comprehensive interventions, our model is guided by a simple core philosophy: to raise healthy, stable children by providing township children with what all children deserveâ€“everything. Ubuntu is the most ambitious social project that the continent of Africa has ever seen. Our sustainability is inextricably linked to the Ubuntu Model: our flexible, community-based strategy providing individualized, cradle to career care to orphaned and vulnerable children. We do not measure our success by the number of pills we distribute or by how many students we enroll in our educational programs. Rather, our strength lies in the depth of our impact and in the quality of our interventions. By professionalizing our grassroots service delivery model and investing in local leadership, we have created an institution that is able to outperform every other in the region and achieve unprecedented results. Ubuntuâ€™s strategy can and will be replicated in disadvantaged communities around the world. This past year, we launched U.ME.WE, our 3-year, $25 million campaign that will take another 2,000 children and their families on the pathway out of poverty. In transforming the lives of these children, the Ubuntu Model is proving that our birthplaces do not have to define our futures. Thank you for your continued support,
Malizole Banks Gwaxula, Founder and Senior Advisor
