Ubuntu Institute

Ubuntu Institute

The Ubuntu Institute was founded by Prince Cedza Dlamini in Boston, Massachusetts in 2005. Any good idea requires the support of many people to come to fruition, and the Ubuntu Institute is no exception.From its inception in Boston, the Institute benefited from hundreds of contributions from people in New York, Washington DC, South Africa, Swaziland, Dubai, the United Nations 2015 MDG network and the Global Peace Initiative of Women network.The organization aims to achieve its mission and vision in a variety of ways, including the empowerment of young people as a catalyst for change. Young people are every country’s future. Youth are full of ideas, energy, and optimism. Young people can be powerful agents of change. Unfortunately, many young people are not engaged or allowed to be engaged in national government policy-making; many are disillusioned with politics and policy-making or are apathetic – not as involved as they should or could be.The Institute has evolved from being just a youth organization to being a grassroots-driven organization, seeking and implementing indigenous, culturally sensitive solutions to social problems in Africa.The evolution came about after two consultative Southern African Development Community (SADC) conferences with youth leaders who complained that many initiatives on the development agenda didn’t care much about the voices and concerns of the youth, especially from marginalized communities.After two successful years doing research in the marginalized communities, the Ubuntu Institute has developed several programs in HIV/AIDS, human rights, gender and women empowerment, and sustainable development, to name a few, that are focused on supporting marginalized communities in rural and semi-urban environments in Southern Africa.Fortunately, in the first year of operation, the Ubuntu Institute attracted funding from a key partner, the Ford Foundation, and other donors including the WK Kellogg Foundation, South Africa’s Industrial Development Corporation and the Umsobomvu Youth Fund, a South African government fund. The organization is now fully operational in Pretoria, South Africa, conducting research in HIV/AIDS prevention, gender and women empowerment initiatives and youth leadership conferences. The organization is driven to become one of the most recognisable non-profit brands in Southern Africa and around the world.

About Founder

Prince Cedza Dlamini of Swazilan

Prince Cedza Dlamini has a degree in International Relations and Political Science from Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, in the USA. He is an international public speaker (as a UN Millennium Development Goals spokesperson and activist), a humanitarian and a social entrepreneur.

He was born into the Royal Family in Swaziland and founded the Ubuntu Institute as an organization that would benefit youth and provide education on how the Millennium Development Goals could be achieved in Africa.

His strategy was to focus on four key goals: eradication of poverty; gender and women empowerment; education; and eradication of HIV/AIDS. As the CEO of the Ubuntu Institute, he promotes a values-based approach (looking at the role of heritage, indigenous knowledge systems and culture) in achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals and is responsible for providing strategic direction for the organization.

 

Swaziland

 

Swaziland, officially the Kingdom of Eswatini (/ˈswɑːzlænd/ or /-lənd/; Swazi: Umbuso weSwatini; sometimes called kaNgwane or Eswatini), is a sovereign state in Southern Africa. It is neighboured by Mozambique to its northeast and by South Africa to its north, west and south; it is a landlocked country. The country and its people take their names from Mswati II, the 19th-century king under whose rule Swazi territory was expanded and unified.
