Before I was a District Leader, I worked for six years with Ubuntu Education Fund to help break the cycle of HIV, abuse and poverty in South Africa. Ubuntu is one of the most effective and remarkable organizations in the world – committed to the concept that all children deserve the resources needed to succeed.
Now my good friend and Ubuntu Education Fund founder, Jacob Lief, has written a book about Ubuntu, the communities we work in, and how to build a better model for development. It is beautifully written, and a must-read for anyone concerned with fighting global poverty and disease. The book, I Am Because You Are, has a foreward from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and is available for preorder at:http://www.iambcyouare.com.
Ubuntu’s model of development is different from many others. It doesn’t seek to distribute a few resources as widely as possible. Rather, Ubuntu recognizes that every child is worthy of investment. And the results have been stunning. I Am Because You Are sketches this path beautifully. Please pre-order a copy today. You won’t regret it. Thank you.
