Manifesto

We are all about "A better Africa for All"
A New Social Paradigm defined and built by the people, of the people, for the people.
 Vision & Mission 
 
An Utopic Africa that compasses free basic needs, direct democracy, humane iOT, conscious economy, & green Africa through Ubujima - Swaheli wordplay for creativity, collective work and responsibility.
As Africa emerges, rises, and begins to forge a more positive outlook ahead, a concerted efforts to rethink the future and come up with relevant and sustainable ideas for the future is fundamental. Ubujima is a communal catalyst & co-creation platform supporting & partnering with all existing initiatives for such social change but ultimately to serve as the foundational block of shaping and transforming Africa in such times.
 Principles
 
Our foundation community framework is built on the following principles
  • Self- determination  & organization: the framework is meant to facilitate both of them. It minimizes coercion; and it support free agency and organizational organic complexification with a transparent order
  • Inclusivity / openness: facilitating direct participation of whoever is affected by a decision, whether physically or morally. It should encourage the leverage of collective intelligence through open collaboration
  • Decentralized transparency: decentralized and transparent system that creates trust and visibility for the stakeholders involved.
  •  Dynamism & Agility: enabling rapid adaptations to changes and challenges
  • Collaboration over competition: commitment to solving communal problems -  taking ego out of our equation and rather promote a culture of collaboration
  • Sustainability: the framework is “sustainability-oriented” in that its designed to directly tackle social and/or environmental issues.
  • 80/20 principle: to drive engagement, contribution and innovation by incentivizing change agents and community as a whole
