What we do
Ubuntu at Work, a social enterprise, collaborates with women micro entrepreneurs living in poverty. We help them develop their existing micro enterprise or establishing a new sustainable one. Most of the women micro entrepreneurs we collaborate with have no craft or other marketable skills when they join the Ubuntu at Work community. With the help of field staff and volunteers around the world, we help the women gain new capabilities, collaboratively develop green products they can make at their homes or in a Ubuntu at Work Baobab Workspace located near them, and finally, we help them market these products around the world.
Ubuntu at Work operates in South Africa, India, Rwanda, Uganda, the United States, and soon in Indonesia.
Ubuntu at Work Inc. is registered in the United States as a 501(c)3. Ubuntu at Work South Africa is registered as a non-profit in South Africa. Ubuntu at Work Inc has an on-going partnership with Ubuntu at Work Trust registered in India.
Since January 2009, when Ubuntu at Work was founded, the Ubuntu at Work community has reached out to women, children, in poor communities in India, Egypt, and South Africa and helped them enhance their capabilities, expand their aspirations, and escape poverty.
