How we help

Developing our people, groups and organisations

Ubele’s strengths are reaching out to people and empowering them.

Underpinning the success of all our work is the development of individual community leaders, activists, entrepreneurs, community groups and organisations, helping them feel valued and giving a sense of belonging.

“I was lucky enough to experience going on a life-changing Action Learning workshop in Athens, Greece as part of Sankofa Intergenerational Learning Hub. It absolutely set the tone for me personally for what the next steps in my future would look like. The most important thing was that we were all open to learn from each other and to express ourselves to be able to find solutions to some of our biggest questions.

This experience has led me to continue working with Ubele in the form of the Young Emerging Leaders’ Collective.”

— Amran Mohamed, Young Emerging Leaders Collective Member
