OUR MISSION AND VISION
Our vision is to create a world in which people can live a just and dignified life. According to this principle, our mission is to demand and promote sustainable development. Bantu e.V. focuses on a critical approach to political development cooperation with international partners and an awareness of neocolonial dynamics throughout this workfield.
VALUES OF BANTU
The word Abantu (or “Bantu”) and it’s meaning “People” in different linguistic groups of people in sub-Saharan Africa, is not the only one laying at the foundation of our association. Another value we base our work on is Ubuntu. This word, which comes from the isiZulu and isiXhosa languages, refers to the qualities of generosity, consideration and humanity.
As an organisation, together with the community members, our friends and partners, based on this philosophical and historical truth, we set ourselves out by joining our limitless resources and expertise, the Ubuntu Spirit and Love to serve, build strong community systems that can uplift the Bantu (human beings) both in the diaspora and those on & from the African continent but also other marginalised communities in other global South regions.
