what  is  "ubuntu"

“Ubuntu” a Nguni term meaning “humanity”. It is often translated as “I am because we are,” or “humanity towards others”, but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”

who we are

 ー Partnering with YOU to build a better world where all children have a fighting chance at life.

We started as a smaller student volunteer group in 2012.

 

We named our organization Toshokan Sensei (Library Teacher) Our main goal and activity was collecting used books and used clothes in Japan and sending them to Africa in shipping containers sent by the parent trading company Out Of Africa Tokyo Consulting Japan inside used Japanese cars destined to these countries. This way we could save on freight costs.

 

These books have been distributed to young learners especially in rural settings where there are no libraries. We hope in the future to acquire mobile libraries so we can expand on this initiative. We would also like to assist in building modern toilets for learners in the future.

In 2018 we resolved to register our entity officially as an NPO and expand the scope to cover other areas such as SDGs specifically in education, agriculture, nutrition and sanitation. We also changed our name to NPO Corporation Ubuntu (NPO法人Ubuntu) Our membership is open to all nationalities, genders, religious affiliations, races, ages etc. We are a self-
sponsored organization.
