Ubuntu Community Resource Foundation – Legacy Fund and Development Fund
SSCF and UCAS & ADPA are establishing a Fund in two parts known as Ubuntu Community Resource Foundation – Legacy Fund; and Ubuntu Community Resource – Development Fund.
The objectives and goal of these funds are centered in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) – specifically in the “equality of human dignity and worth” of every human being, and it’s the other objects. The aim of these funds is focused on addressing systemic racism; and their work is informed by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s Declaration on Race and the Elimination of Racial Prejudice (1978). They also seek to effectively contribute to the goals of the UN International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024) – i.e., Recognition, Justice, and Development.
Donate to the Legacy Fund
The purpose of Ubuntu Community Resource Foundation – Legacy Fund aligns with the establishment of legacy fund – as a perpetual, holistic (human, social and economic) development goal that sustains healthy and equitable inclusion and participation of the people of African descent in Canada- to eternity.
Donations to this Fund are intended for long-term use and grow over time to benefit this initiative for many years to come.
