Ubuntu Academy, IPAV

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

IPAV-Instituto Padre António Vieira is a non-profit civic association. Its objective is reflection, education and action in the promotion of human dignity, social solidarity, sustainability, development, diversity and dialogue between civilizations/cultures. Ubuntu Academy is a non-formal education project that aims to empower young people with high leadership potential, coming from contexts of social exclu-sion and/or aiming to work on them, so that they may develop projects of social entrepreneurship in the service of the community. The Ubuntu method isessentially a process of learning and social transformation through a pedagogy of relation. It is grounded in a roadmap based on: (i) role models (e.g. Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King...); (ii) tools (e.g. Project management); (iii) experiences (e.g. Judo and leadership); and (iv) challenges (e.g. development of projects on social innovation).
