Chairs & Tables Needed For UBUNTU Community Kitchen

Michael Tellinger gives an update on the UBUNTU Community Hall restoration in Waterval Boven, the home of UBUNTU Contributionism. We urgently need 300 chairs and 15 metal folding tables to open the doors and start using the venue for the people. All the other basic necessities are in place for us to function simply but effectively.

The revamped community hall is set to become the heart of the community because this is where the community kitchen will be that will feed all those who participate in the projects on a daily basis - this will include the orphans, the aged, the homeless and all those who simply cannot afford to buy food. The NEW UBUNTU Community Hall will also be the venue for daily literacy classes, sewing, knotting, the new gym, concerts, theatre, talent shows, movies, documentaries and much more activity. So far, the funding for all the repairs and upgrades have come from Michael Tellinger, income received from the sales of the UBUNTU book, money raised by Michael from his presentations around the world, and a small number of donors who make regular contributions to UBUNTU - But the tables and chairs are just out of reach for us right now. So please make a donation on the UBUNTU website if you can - help us open this venue as soon as possible - click on this link: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donat...

Urgent Message to UBUNTU Members, Representatives and Coordinators

Please respond to this as soon as you can.

I have created a special form for all our existing and future UBUNTU affiliates, coordinators and representatives to streamline our activity around the world. This has become necessary because of the sudden rise in rogue individuals, websites and FB pages that claim to represent our movement but have begun to undermine our activity in various ways. This new database is critical to our future stability and unity. It will also allow us to connect UBUNTU members to each other in their communities, states and countries and allow us to list all approved affiliates, coordinators, representatives, FB pages, websites, and others on our NEW official UBUNTU Planet and UBUNTU Party websites. This is unfortunately the only way in which we can separate the detractors from true affiliates very quickly and allow people to see who is truly affiliated to the original UBUNTU Movement.


Please note:
The UBUNTU LOGO carries international Copyright Protection that belongs to Michael Tellinger and the original UBUNTU Movement in South Africa and may only be used by approved affiliates who are not diluting, changing or manipulating the UBUNTU Contributionism message and philosophy. Such approval will come from the UBUNTU Head office in South Africa.
Unless your name, or FB link, or online link appears on our website - you will not be recognized as an approved affiliate and you will not be allowed to use our name and logo in any way. So please act now.
Please complete one of the TWO following options:
  1. If you simply want to join the UBUNTU Movement, wherever you may be in the world - Click on this link and fill in the form - http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/join-us.html - We will be able to link you to other UBUNTU members in your area and around the world.
  2. If you want to become more active as a coordinator or representative or start an UBUNTU Party - OR if you are already active in some way with UBUNTU in such a way - please fill in this form - http://journeys.ubuntuplanet.org/bf.php?fid=3493
NB: A political platform is a very important component of the UBUNTU movement that some still do not quite understand. If you want to start an UBUNTU political Party in your country - please contact me directly via email. There are critical issues that need to be covered in those areas.
Thank you for being part of the fastest growing global movement of Unity Consciousness - the future is now in our hands - we are the 99.99%

UBUNTU Party UK Will Be Participating In UK Elections July 2015


UBUNTU Party UK leads the way for other countries to follow.

Paul Toussaint has successfully registered the UBUNTU Party in the UK. Well done Paul, I am truly proud of you because I know how exhausting and frustrating this process can be. The UK is now the first country other than South Africa - the home of UBUNTU, to have an UBUNTU Party - ready to offer the people of the UK a real alternative and a true vision of abundance and prosperity for the future. Paul and I will start to put together the UBUNTU Party representatives over the next few weeks that will lead the Party in the UK.
The letter from the electoral office that confirms the UBUNTU Party registration.

COORDINATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES
I have created a special form for all our existing and future UBUNTU affiliates, coordinators and representatives to streamline our activity around the world. This has become necessary because of the many rogue individuals, websites and FB pages that claim to represent our movement but have begun to undermine our activity in various ways. This database is critical to our future stability and will also allow us to connect UBUNTU members to each other in their communities, states and countries and allow us to list all approved affiliates on our website - so that everyone can see separate the detractors from true affiliates very quickly.

WHY POLITICS?
For those that are still confused about why we entered the political arena? It is very simple - while UBUNTU Contributionism is a world-wide movement of higher consciousness, our philosophy is completely opposed to the current sociopolitical models that are offered to humanity.
The current models are enforced by the corrupt and unlawful legal systems imposed on us by corrupt governments, judges, courts and politicians, all of whom are controlled by the banking elite, who ultimately control every aspect of our lives with their privately controlled central banks and private money that enslaves all of us for life.
Most of the statements we make in the UBUNTU movement fly directly in the face of the current regimes and could be seen as treason by the current legal system. The political platform gives us protection because it allows us to present our philosophy as a promise to the people in a political campaign. These are our rights and we will use them as such. The political presence gives many ordinary people who may be ignorant of the facts, the reassurance that we are serious about our message. Our participation in the elections will also force the mainstream media to look at UBUNTU more seriously - often giving us exposure to millions of people, which we could not achieve without their involvement.
So let us start to mobilise the people of the UK for the next election and share the beautiful philosophy of Contributionism as widely as we can. We have some really exiting work to do.
I will be touring the UK in the weeks leading up to the 2015 election to inspire the people and grow the support as much as we can with Paul Toussaint and the UK representatives. The details of the tour will be posted on this website at a later stage.

The Sound of Children Singing - The Voice of UBUNTU is Alive

This was one of the happiest moment of the past year for me. The UBUNTU Community Hall is almost ready for use after neglect and vandalism over a period of 7 years.

On Saturday the 15th November 2014, children sang in the UBUNTU Community Hall for the first time in over 8 years as part of the integrated UBUNTU Community Projects that were launched in Waterval Boven, South Africa. The vandalized community hall was partially repaired by myself and a group of youngsters from the township, who have taken the Contributionism model to heart. 
The hall became a giant human waste dump with urine and excrement everywhere – the stench was unbearable, and everything was vandalised and broken. It has taken us over 4 months of drip-feed funding and a concerted effort  from the UBUNTU volunteers to make this amazing hall usable again.
To reopen the hall properly and safely, we still have to fix both the Ladies & Gents toilets - install basins, toilets and doors, and fix the plumbing. But we also need a PA system, microphones, mixing desk, stage lighting, stage curtain, more electrical wiring and plugs, projector, chairs, tables, and other odds and ends which include four more security gates to keep everything safe inside.
This hall will be the heart of the many UBUNTU Community projects and host daily activities starting from 8 am, with literacy classes, documentaries and educational films for the young ones, movies, shows and concerts at night - talent contests and cultural activities on the weekends.
We will coordinate all 23 community projects  from here and it will also serve as  the Community Kitchen, feeding the orphans, the hungry, and all those who participate in the community projects every day.
Please make a small contribution if you can towards developing our community projects, until such time that they are sustainable and start to create abundance for our community. You can make a contribution of your choice by clicking here: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html

UBUNTU Secures A Saw Mill For The Community

It does seem like we are getting real traction with key community projects that will actually bring in revenue for project expansion, while serving the community with real benefits. Access to affordable building materials has become almost impossible in South Africa. This is why I am so excited about this specific community project. And it seems that once we get on a roll, we start to manifest what we need, if it is for the highest good of the whole community.
Within a period of about 2 weeks I managed to manifest a very expensive industrial wood saw, that can handle tree trunks of about 1,5 m wide and 6 m long. This was offered to us by my friend Dave, who has such a saw standing on his farm not doing any work, which made him feel a bit embarrassed.
Dave has graciously made the saw available to the UBUNTU Community Projects with immediate effect - which includes the services of Thomas, an expert operator of the complex saw.
It does not look like much to the untrained eye, but this is a R250,000 wood saw that can cut 6 m long tree trunks with ease - into any thickness or shape necessary to create building grade wood.

Some of the tree trunks made available for the UBUNTU Community Projects.

Thomas will be teaching me (Michael) and two other apprentices from our community how to use the saw properly and safely.

The saw comes with several dozen tree trunks that will be a good start for providing building wood for the community. We will keep the saw on the farm for now - until we find appropriate premises for it, but we will cut and deliver wood on a weekly basis to our storage space at the UBUNTU Village HQ in Waterval Boven. All I need to find now is a 4-metre trailer to deliver the wood from the farm. This is a R30,000 expense (US$ 3,000) - but we will put the trailer to good use in the future with deliveries to people in our community and those around us.
Thomas will teach me and two other community volunteers to operate the saw and once we are competent, we will move it to our premises for ease of continued operation. In the meantime we have been offered a continued supply of cheap wood from a farmer down the valley about to clear 20 hectares of blue gum forest.
And so it starts - step by step we create the abundance we have been visualising for our community and spread it to all those around us. This what Contributionism is all about.
Remember that you can make a small contribution towards all these projects and the cost of setting them up by a once-off donation OR by becoming a monthly donor of a small amount you can afford.

List of UBUNTU Community Projects

Below is a list of the UBUNTU Community Projects that we have launched in Waterval Boven.
The Community Centre - Hall and Food Kitchen should be active by the end of November - but we still need to do is the following:
Replace some toilets and basins, do the plumbing, fix the kitchen sink, install some fridges and gas burners, several new light fittings, get tables and chairs for eating, cutlery and crockery, and chairs for seating in the hall. We also need to finish the electrical rewiring for lights and plugs. Then we can start feeding the community workers and screening documentaries, movies and having musical and theatrical performances and become self sustainable.


As you can imagine, this has been a mammoth task for a small group of people with very little funding - but we have made amazing progress with the participation of the first group of volunteers from the township - mostly young men who realised that this is the only way we will create abundance for our community. So please sign up and make a small monthly contribution to these efforts which will enable us to continue activating these projects without delay. Today I am meeting with the rubbish dump recyclers. You can make a monthly contribution of your choice by clicking here: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html

LIST OF PROPOSED COMMUNITY PROJECTS – TO CREATE ABUNDANCE FOR ALL

  3.     Community food gardens and growing enough food for all our people all year round
  4.     Re-activating the vandalised food growing garden and strawberry farm
  5.     Mushroom cultivation – one of the big halls at the fish farm – this will provide more mushrooms than our town can consume and will generate good income for the community
  6.     Growing seedlings and nursery – with primary school children learning new skills – beautifying our town with these plants and trees – fruit trees and nut trees for growing food along the streets and in the parks
  7.     Dairy – production of milk; cream; butter and cheese – export our cheese and butter
  8.     Bakery – get a master chef to train our bakers to bake many kinds of breads for our people and distribute to Mpumalanga

  19.     Creation of public parks and recreational areas along the river - including the upgrading and activation of the trout dams – stimulating tourism
  20.     Tourism – Upgrade existing tourism attractions like the tunnel and introduce several new and exciting tourism attractions to benefit our people. Involve the community in this process
  21.     Upgrading and maintaining all the sporting facilities – including the swimming pool – and a community fitness centre/gym. Creating a healthy environment of sport and recreation with regular competition between teams for public participation and enjoyment
  22.     A local Radio Station at the community hall to inform and entertain our people
  23.     Fish Farm – Our fish farm can produce more than a million fish per month, create many jobs and feed our entire town and create abundance from exports. It has come to our attention that the fish farm has been sold or given to the NOKA developers and that they want to demolish the fish farm to build a shopping centre. This would be a great pity since this fish farm should serve the community. A shopping centre can be built anywhere without the destruction of a valuable asset of the people. We strongly oppose the destruction of the fish farm at all cost.  The fish farm should be one of the cornerstones of our community and our community projects.

Time For Volleyball - UBUNTU Community Projects Keep Rolling Out In Waterval Boven

This weekend we shifted out attention to uplifting the game of Volleyball in Waterval Boven - the home of UBUNTU. Coach Amos Mashaba assembled the two teams that practice regularly and they entertained the people with a full 5-set game series after which the winning team won R750. Each team received a new ball and we planted the seeds of volleyball as being a sport in which many members of the community can participate to build the community spirit and unity. There was a DJ who played great music and created a truly wonderful atmosphere, very different from a soccer game - the people had a great festive time. Upgrading the volleyball facilities and creating a second court now becomes a priority. Next - we move to basketball and netball while the UBUNTU Community centre approaches launch and a grand opening event in the hall with a concert of local musical talent PLUS a theatrical Nativity Play which is being rehearsed in the primary school and will involve around 500 students between ages 6 and 13. Please make donations to the continuing UBUNTU Community projects on our website - by becoming a regular contributor with a small monthly contribution which will allow us to keep these initiatives going while we become self sustainable. http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html
Coach Amos Mashaba examines the new balls and gives me a rundown of the day's planned activity

Michael is not only one of the volleyball players but the coach for the basketball team who will be getting active as soon as we have made the basketball court usable - it is completely vandalised without baskets or even the poles to hold them up

Some of the action - I was pleasantly surprised at the skills of the players

UBUNTU Community Projects Turn to Growing Food

The next challenge for the UBUNTU Movement at its head office in Waterval Boven, South Africa, is to restore the neglected food growing gardens and state of the art hydroponic strawberry farm that was left to ruin and destroyed by fire because of the long grass. This kind of neglect by our leaders is a crime against the people. This farm brought thousands of people off the highway into the town to eat and buy strawberries. Someone did not like this success of the people.


But more and more people are waking up to this fact daily and joining the UBUNTU Community Projects. I am astounded at the level of support we are receiving from the community and the rate at which people are joining us. All this points to the local/regional elections in 2016 - if we continue at this pace, we should win this seat and start the domino effect across our country and across our borders.
Join UBUNTU today and support our activities with a small regular contribution - this is tough relentless and continuous work - but we are determined to set the example that I have been talking about for 10 years. http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/join-us.html
 

Once the Community Hall starts to operate in about 2 weeks, we will be setting in motion the true Contributionism philosophy for the very first time in our modern world. This is not a self sustained community as some believe - it is a community of abundance and prosperity on all levels.
In unity

Second UBUNTU Soccer Tournament And More Sports to Come

The second Soccer Tournament was held in Waterval Boven this past Sunday, where another 4 teams participated.
This is a great step towards normalising sporting and recreational activity in the evolving UBUNTU town. Winners FC won the event. We are now planing to have a play-off between the two winning teams of the past two weeks, in the near future, to determine a winner in the Waterval Boven Cup.
Captain of WINNERS FC receives his trophy and prize
Half-time pep-talk by coach Hendrik to his team who eventually won the day

One of the tense moments of the game, as it always is with corner kicks

Refreshments were provided not only for the players but for the children as well

This weekend we will be hosting the volleyball event to promote this sport among the people. Next week we will be moving on to basketball and netball - but first we have to do some serious repairs to the courts that are basically unusable.

The badly damaged and neglected basketball and netball courts above and below - we will need to raise a substantial amount of funds to repair these courts to acceptable standards. Please support us if you are a fan of these sports


Donation towards all the community projects can be made here: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html
