Ubuntu, or Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu in isiZulu, is an African philosophy which describes humanity; 'I am because we are'. To live with Ubuntu is to be aware of the intricate inter-connectedness between ones self, all other people, nature and life and to act in a way that looks after all. 

The Ubuntu Programme provides opportunities for people to build connections across the globe as well as connections to our planet, that will, we hope, last a lifetime. These connections are vital if we are to create a planet where all life on earth can thrive.


The Ubuntu programme was set up as a platform to connect children on the other side of the planet, with the principles of Ubuntu at the heart of the programme. Through our partners on the ground across Africa, we partner schools in the UK with schools on the edge of wildlife areas in Africa, helping to forge friendships that otherwise wouldn't be possible. It is also a chance for the UK school to fundraise for their African partners to visit their local Wildlife Reserve and connect with the wildlife there.  Our partnership programmes are set up for two way learning and are a great platform to;



Make friendships across the globe.

 Share cultures, languages, songs and stories.   

Share information on local wildlife and ecosystems.
Share pictures and videos of school life.
Friendly competitions between schools.

Fundraising by the UK school to fund wildlife trips for their African partners.
