About Us

The name is herewith referred in a shortened version as IMBADU, meaning among other things sharing ideas and action plans in isiXhosa.Presidents Rholihlahla Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki reintroduced the idea of African Renaissance after April 27, 1994 to reclaim African heritage, identity, ubuntu, human dignity and driving reconstruction plans. Enhanced meaning of masakhane in isiXhosa, which means let us build each other and Vuk’ uzenzele, that means rise up and do it for yourself, and Ubuntu which epitomizes our humanity, that is each person is a person through others, in isiXhosa we say: “Umntu ngumntu ngabantu”.
