Sandis’ Ubuntu Foundation is a Section 21 and Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) that works towards the transformation of South African communities by promoting access to quality education to an African Child a reality in disadvantaged communities.
The foundation’s vision is of communities filled with citizens who are agents of change that contribute to the restoration of the dignity of Africa’s children. Our mission is to operate a professional & effective foundation that opens the doors of learning through developing facilities and programmes that promote positive learning environments and social upliftment.
The foundation was established to address the challenges and development needs of marginalised communities with a strong focus on education. The aim is to produce world-class leaders by highlighting the importance of education and encouraging young people to see it as a tool for human development and advancement.
More than ever, the 21st century highlights the importance of education as the most important liberator of African youth, as evidenced through the nationwide demonstrations and engagements led by South African youth in recent months targeted at promoting access to education for students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds. Young people are as a whole the future guardians of the country and as such must provide leadership and be part of the solution in ensuring that all young people have access to receive all the benefits possible in order to have the ability to contribute to the success of this country.
A signature is often an underrated practice that is of great significance. It is the trademark and legacy of an individual that not only emphasizes the mark they leave on what they have done but also portrays a portion of their literary ingenuity. The power of a signature has changed the course of human history time and time again. The signatures of our father, the late Nelson Mandela and F.W de Klerk gave birth to a rainbow nation that is alive with possibilities.
We’ve incorporated the significance of the signature as part of a philanthropic initiative that will oversee the establishment of state-of-the-art school & community libraries fitted out with the latest ICTs to promote high usage and ownership. Further, the programme will see a donation of new books that will be collected from citizens with personal messages and signatures of individuals to start a library for Kholwani Primary School that will cater for the academic and educational needs of any South African community member who will use the key of education to unlock the chains of poverty and ignorance.
“Signature Library” aims to promote learning by exposing communities, particularly young people, to programmes that will ensure that they make the best of opportunities the country has to offer and most importantly the role that they have to play in nation building and social cohesion.
We intend to undertake a pilot project at Kholwani Primary school as part of the proof of concept. The project will be documented and treated as a case study for expansion. The proof of concept will also entail the formation of partnerships with relevant government departments as well as securing private sector partners and sponsors for the expansion of the projects.
