The goal of Umuntu Movement is divided in two and represents a cycle in the classical Umuntu way of thinking. First of all, we want to help as many needy people as possible. Whether with clean water, educational or environmental projects. Because Umuntu is as diverse as the world itself. And at the same time we would like to invite as many people as possible to be part of the movement, to give their lives even more meaning and to experience through a large community what is possible when people work together on a change.
Our approach to the projects is always “helping people to help themselves”. We want to enable people to shape their own lives. And our understanding of the Umuntu community, which implements the aid projects together with us, is full of humility: Everyone is invited to help. No matter whether the contribution is large or small and no matter whether it is about personal cooperation or financial donations to our charitable association, the Umuntu Movement.
The projects are based on the four basic principles:
- Clean water – made possible by Umuntu water filter technology.
Pure air – allowed by tree planting worldwide.
Biological food – made possible by sustainable permaculture.
Sensuous formation – enabled by the Ecopreneurship-Cycle.
Each donor decides which project receives a donation. A transparent and efficient use of funds is extremely important to us. In addition, we would like to charge our activities positively. Because we believe that only then can our movement become a huge movement. Or, figuratively speaking: So that individual drops become a whole ocean that is supposed to change this world.
