Ubuntu-Village of Life is a non-profit organization whose vision is to support disadvantaged people living in rural areas with a particular emphasis on returnees, displaced persons, widows, orphans, and disabled children. Areas of specific import include those destroyed during the civil war, all of which are still reeling from the damaging effects of war, poverty, and general instability. We pledge to provide education, shelter and health care services to those who need. We are also committed to teaching sustainable economic development backed by innovation and modern practices in our main areas of concern: health; agriculture; nutrition and environmental issues. To fulfill this vision, we will utilize the Israeli innovation in agriculture, health, education, and technology.
Ubuntu-village of life will mainly work in Sub Saharan Africa with particular emphasis on rural areas of Burundi. Activities will begin in Mugamba commune in the province of Bururi, an under-developed, poverty-stricken rural neighborhood that has no health care services within a 60 km distance. Burundi has the highest maternal and under five children mortality rate in the world due to complication during pregnancy and childbirth accounting for respectively 740/100000, and 72/1000 live births.
