Mandela’s legacy lives beyond one day

CALL TO ACTION: CPUT students infuse the spirit of Ubuntu into all they do CALL TO ACTION: CPUT students infuse the spirit of Ubuntu into all they do

Dealing with others in the spirit of Ubuntu is a core CPUT value and it infuses all activities at the institution.

CPUT staff and students are always looking for new and innovative ways of effecting positive change in the lives of others.

The Mandela Legacy Project is an ongoing campaign managed by the Civic Engagement Unit to spread Nelson Mandela’s message of taking action to make the world a better place. The project consists of 17 Ubuntu Ambassadors who mentor learners at seven schools across the Western Cape. The learners are prepared for tertiary education, the associated value and challenges of it and mentoring the youngsters on not falling victim to societal ills like drugs. The Ubuntu Ambassadors and the learners have already spent a weekend at Robben Island learning about Mandela’s legacy and how they live their lives accordingly.

Today Wellington students will be doing an outreach project at a local school. The students have planned an educational programme and lunch for the learners. They will also develop a Learner Support Room at the school later this term.
