Ubuntu Mail facilitates communication, growth, and change amongst children of the world in developing regions
who do not typically get exposure to ideas or cultures beyond their community walls.
Why We Do It
THE CONCEPT OF UBUNTU
“Ubuntu” is a beautiful, ancient concept upheld by many world cultures, however it is particularly associated with the African philosophy that offers us an understanding of ourselves in relation to the world at large. According to Ubuntu, there exists a common bond between every soul on the planet, and through this bond and interactions with our fellow human beings, we realize our own human qualities. Ubuntu is commonly translated as “human kindness.” However, its meaning transcends the scope of simple kindness – it embodies the very ideals of connection, community, and mutual caring for all.
Our program implements the core principles of this compassionate philosophy to benefit children and their communities directly. We connect entirely different cultures to cultivate respect and understanding, foster meaningful relationships, and create special bonds between people that reflect the essence of Ubuntu.
To ignite youth globally through cross-cultural exchanges and service supported by highly progressive educational practices for the purpose of promoting a peaceful world and developing global citizens who are fully equipped for the 21st Century.
“The mission of Ubuntu Mail is to spread global cultural understanding and implement real, self-sustainable change in the world.” — Maria Negliad
Our short term goals involve motivating and incentivizing children around the world to improve their English and to spark interest and awareness in youth about their place in the global community.
Our long term goals involve increasing the understanding and tolerance of diversity amongst the youth involved in our programs and the public through letter exhibitions, as well as enabling sustainable solutions in communities based on insights gained during the letter exchange programs and ambassador research.
To stay close to the community and represent our activities on a regional level, we’ve created a team of
passionate individuals to help with integrating projects into local schools.
