Establishment and Registration

Ubuntu Academic Institute was established in 2022 with a vision to address the educational and employment challenges faced by rural communities. Recognizing the significant barriers that individuals in these areas encounter when seeking jobs due to a lack of formal qualifications, the founders of Ubuntu Academic Institute were driven by a mission to create accessible and practical educational opportunities.

In 2023, Ubuntu Academic Institute was officially registered, marking a significant milestone in its journey to become a recognized entity dedicated to skill development and community upliftment. Although the Institute is currently unaccredited, it remains committed to delivering high-quality education and training programs that meet the needs of its target audience.
