Ubuntu Pathways Campus re-opens thanks to ETN blockchain transaction validator rewards and charitable donations

Ubuntu Pathways has recently released a powerful video stating that the global COVID-19 health crisis has had a particularly negative impact on South Africa and more specifically, the Eastern Cape where Ubuntu is based.

In the video, the prominent charitable organisation reports that the "Ubuntu community has lost one in 300" to the coronavirus pandemic. It adds that the COVID-19 death rate in the Eastern Cape is "perhaps the highest in the world."

Ubuntu also states that "nearly everyone has lost someone after a year defined by hunger, sickness, joblessness, and household instability."

The video then goes on to a more positive note, announcing that Ubuntu Pathways’ campus has reopened in the townships of Gqeberha, formerly Port Elizabeth.

Ubuntu, praised by global leaders such as Bill Clinton and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Desmond Tutu, has made a significant and positive impact in South Africa. Because of Ubuntu, about 2,000 children and their families are on pathways out of poverty through very effective cradle-to-career assistance.

"Having the Ubuntu School open once again has been truly inspiring, and we are truly grateful to Electroneum for helping to make this possible," they added.

Since 2019, Ubuntu Pathways is one of Electroneum’s trusted blockchain network validators for which they receive ETN rewards that they utilise to further their on-the-ground assistance.
