Our story

The wake-up call

We live in a time of massive institutional failure, in which we collectively create results that nobody wants. The list is well known: Inequalities, Climate change, Hunger, Poverty, Terrorism, Violence, Destruction of communities, nature, life—the foundations of our social, economic, ecological, and spiritual well-being. These times call for a new consciousness, collaboration and collective leadership capacity to meet these challenges in a more conscious, intentional, and strategic way.

The development of such a capacity would allow us to create a future of greater possibilities.

 

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. Co-creation or collaborations through iterations and reflections by combinations of the diverse actors or stakeholders is today the core process for any sustainable development or change

 

Ubujima - "an open collaborative community to co-create a better Africa for all" is a grass root level organization of people and groups like yourself from different backgrounds believing by tapping our collective capacities and network-effect we can pursue sustainable innovation and development for a better Africa and global afro-community.

Our campaigns, projects, and work resolve mainly around addressing these concerns collectively;

  • Current Governance and Institutions

  • Technology (internet) and Society

  • Consciousness & Communitiness 

  • Diaspora transnational civil society

  • African Unification

Our name Ubujima comes from the combination of two Swahili words (Ubunifu and Ujima) that together translate to creativity, collective work and responsibility
