We are growing a new generation and a critical mass of uBuntu Keepers.
Do you believe in uBuntu? Would you like to help carry and pass on its flame? Would you like to learn more about uBuntu and how to apply it in your own life and to live it for the benefit of all?
uBuntu is our most precious African Spiritual heritage. It IS who we as the people of Africa; uniquely conscious of and living our humanness and our Oneness. It is who we all are as human beings at the core. We are all Keepers of uBuntu!
The uBuntu Civics Academy has accepted the uBuntu torch from our ancestors as it has been passed on from generations and generations, and we are bringing it to the heart of as many people in South Africa and the world as possible through the uBuntu Keepers initiative in three spheres: Civil Society, Schools and Education, as well as the Corporate World.
To help remind us of who we really are and to make it possible for us to reclaim and live uBuntu more and more, and for uBuntu to regain its rightful place in society again, the uBuntu Civics Academy has develop a basic as well as an advanced uBuntu Keepers courses that include modules on the Origins of uBuntu, meanings and definitions, the universal laws of uBuntu, some essential elements of uBuntu, as well as how uBuntu is found and recognised in society. The courses make it possible for people to find and grow their own uBuntu and to integrate uBuntu into their own lives. In the end, people are invited to address issues in society that they are passionate about, through uBuntu.
These programs and courses that are made available through the award-winning online platform – TalkUbuntu are launched from an empowerment premise: “it is we who must create the world we want, stated so well in the phrase, “when the people lead, the leaders will follow.”
The program is created around the ideas that real change happens
- when enough people are gathered around a common vision and a dream,
- that our lives are created through our perception of our-self and the world around us, and that change happens from the inside out.
At the core of the uBuntu Keepers course is an uBuntu Charter and Pledge. Those who have completed the advanced course are issued with an uBuntu Keepers certificate, a downloadable copy of the uBuntu Charter and Pledge as well as an uBuntu Keepers badge. They become members of the local and global uBuntu Keepers community
