When I came across a job posting that mentioned Ubuntu, I assumed it had something to do with software. I’m kind of a geek sometimes, so I was thinking about the Linux operating system named Ubuntu (which is the #1 result when you search the word in Google). It turns out that Ubuntu, according to Wikipedia, is also “an ethical concept of African origin” that focuses “on people’s allegiances and relations with each other.” The Ubuntu Education Fund may not be teaching anyone about Linux, but they’re certainly using the idea of Ubuntu to make the world a better place. They are based in Port Elizabeth township in South Africa, where they reach “over 40,000 children with life-saving health and educational resources and services.” The Fund also has offices in London and New York City, which enable them to grow and support the on the ground operations in South Africa.

What Does Ubuntu Mean to You?

The Ubuntu Education Fund’s model for development is based on 8 pillars. They are: Community Involvement, Accountability, Legitimacy, Evaluation, Organizational Learning and Growth, Sound Financial Management, Creativity, and Long Term Thinking. These are the basis for a number of programs that include an Empowerment Initiative, HIV Prevention Outreach, a Clinic, and Child Care and Support. It’s amazing that the Ubuntu Education Fund has been able to take their community focused approach and take it to such a large scale. It goes to show how serious the needs in the Port Elizabeth township are. If you feel called to join the Ubuntu Education Fund, you can find out more by checking out their Jobs page. However, you should note that their only current job posting is on Idealist, and it’s for an Assistant to the Managing Director in New York City.
