UBUNTU = "I am because we are"
UBUNTU is a Nguni Bantu term meaning "humanity." It is often translated as "humanity towards others" emphasizing the importance of a group or community.
Our Ubuntu Nation Camp in Malawi is located adjacent to the Dzaleka Refugee Camp (UNHCR), which was created by the United Nations in 1994 in response to people fleeing genocide, violence and war. Malawi hosts close to 40,000 refugees seeking asylum from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, and Somalia. The majority of children and young people at the Camp do not have access to school, sufficient food, or job opportunities. Gradually, we are helping to change this reality.
While in Malawi the volunteer, Clarissa Paz, was inspired and came to Fraternity Without Borders to initiate the Ubuntu project. FWB bought land and started building a community to provide education, nutrition, vocational training and workshops utilizing the Ubuntu mentality. The Ubuntu Nation project aspires to transform the realities of refugees in the world today. Yes, we want to change the world and invite you to form one nation with us.
Our goal is to change lives of children and young people seeking new opportunities.
