A Short Explanation of UBUNTU & Contributionism by Michael Tellinger

A short and focused definition of UBUNTU and Contributionism by Michael Tellinger.



If you want to become a volunteer at the UBUNTU village and spend 1-2 months in helping us to lay the foundations for this great new global experiment, please read the information on the UBUNTU website here: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/plan-of-action.html


Right now we have a need for volunteers with the following special skills and knowledge:
Food growing;
Seedling cultivation;
Mushroom growing/farming;
Fish farming - telapia;
Sports coaches and coordinators - little league soccer and cricket;
Recycling;
Building;
General repairs and maintenance;

If you are confident you can help us, please contact Louise Clarke louise@zuluplanet.com and send her a short outline of your knowledge and experience. She will get back to you as soon as she can.

FUNDING THE PROJECTS
All of this activity and administration takes time, people and money - as much as we are moving away from money we still have to pay our bills and those that we hire to perform services that we cannot do ourselves. Our administrative costs are on the increase with the growth of the UBUNTU movement worldwide. So please make a donation if you can or become a regular contributor to keep us going and growing. Please click here to make a donation: http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html
We are looking forward to the time and moment that we will no longer require money and funding and start to experience the true benefits of Contributionism.

Images From the Gala Opening Of the UBUNTU Community Hall in Waterval Boven

Finally the big day has come and we had our gala opening event last night at the new fixed up UBUNTU Community Hall in Waterval Boven, South Africa. We now firmly planted the idea of unity much deeper into the hearts of many more people. We had appearances by four local performers and groups and our special guest star Ntsiki Mazway who blessed us with her cutting edge and emotive musical peotry.

As always in these situations, we learn valuable lessons in hosting such events and many mistakes were made for us to learn from as we continue to build the foundations of the community projects that will be managed from this venue.

I am so proud and impressed by our volunteers in the hall, the garden and in the kitchen and especially Arnaud Dekker - our Dutch volunteer who project managed the past 2 weeks to make this all happen smoothly and without incident.

Hope for a picturesque little town
Johanri Coetzee | 16 January 2015 08:15
 Very little remains where once steam locomotives  ran and the hearts of many happy families beated in railway houses.  The picturesque small town Waterval Boven sadly came to an end. Strawberry farms have been demolished and the town hall became a home for vandalists; a R20million (US1.7million) fish farm which came to a stand still and probably will soon be demolished to make way for a shopping centre, is evidence of this.  This is the picture that Michael Tellinger, scientist, researcher and founder of the Ubuntu Party, gives of this small town of the past seven years.
You can’t help thinking of the mini-series, Hopeville, that was made in this small town four years ago and which recently was screened again on TV, it’s ironic you would think.
In the TV-series, Hopeville is ruled by corruption, and the decline of morality is at the order of the day. Themba Ndaba who is acting the roll of Amos Manyoni, finds himself in Hopeville, and hopes to carve out a new life for himself and his estranged son by fixing up the town’s swimming pool, and through that also offer something the community can enjoy. Time and again Amos is confronted by opposing municipal officials and residents, but in the end his patience and determination rewards him more than money could buy.
Today, four years later, it appears as if it wasn’t coincidental that Hopeville was filmed in this small town, and it’s almost as if this Ubuntu movement operated by Tellinger, turned the story of Amos into reality. In stead of the swimming pool it was the Ubuntu Community Hall, and just like in the TV series, Tellinger can testify of a municipality which do not heed to the requests of the residents.
“On 2 October I sent a letter to the Mayor in which we begged for support, but untill today we have not had a reply”
But this did not demotivate Tellinger and the youth of Waterval Boven. “We recently submitted 23 community projects and we should officially inauguarate the Community Hall, where all our projects would be operated from.” These are the Ubuntu principles that will be operated from within Waterval Boven”, explained Tellinger. “Ubuntu is based on contributionism – the opposite of capitalism. It is the social structure in which communities live together in unity to provide for each other by using their God-given talents to contribute, to ensure that everybody will benefit.”
According to Tellinger, the 23 projects which include amongst other things a community kitchen, bakery, music school and the upgrading of the hospital, identified the basic needs that the community needs to generate abundance.  “The philosophy is that each person will contribute three hours per week of their time to get involved in any of the projects and share in the ‘abundance’ that was generated through it.
Tellinger was in 2014 already in 10 countries to present this concept to the world, and he says he was astonished by the overwhelming reaction he received. “Waterval Boven is the first town in the world where the Ubuntu principles are implemented and we already have members all over the world”
After months of implementing the UBUNTU-concept in this small town, it seems as if Waterval Boven’s heart slowly but surely starts to beat again, and you wonder about the Hopevill finalĂ©.

UBUNTU Boxing Academy Starts to Take Shape

Boxing, martial arts and other contact sports have always played a major role in our community. But sadly, just like all other public facilities these have been neglected and funding has been misappropriated or simply vanishes. 

The Waterval Boven boxing community was once a very strong pool of talent, that has been completely forgotten. Several of our boxers travelled the world, from Russia to Australia and the USA. All of them were simply abandoned and many have become homeless. This is what we are redressing as a matter of urgency with the UBUNTU Community Projects.


Such sporting activities play a critical part in helping underprivileged communities to keep teens off the streets and teache them many things while creating a spiritual connection to their physical abilities. It is very successfully used to eliminate conflict, anger, frustration and other social problems and allows the youth to focus their frustration into something constructive. 



We have begun to rehabilitate one of the vandalised halls that once belonged to the fish farm, which will become the UBUNTU Boxing and Martial Arts Academy. It is huge hall that can accommodate several activities at one time and also several hundred spectators once a month to enjoy the activity and competitions. The excitement is almost audible and many young aspiring athletes are joining us in cleaning and fixing the hall so that we can erect the permanent boxing ring and start using it as a permanent gymnasium. More updates will follow.

The left-over plumbing shows how that there was once water in the hall - we need to trace the pipes and find a new source of water for the hall - showers and toilets will have to be built.

Once again we will require help in funding this - so if you can make a contribution - please do so. Make a small donation or become a regular monthly donor - just click this link and choose what you can afford. http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/p/donate.html

Calling For UBUNTU Party UK Candidates - Elections 7 May 2015

If you are ready and able to stand as a Candidate for the UBUNTU Party UK in your constituency please click on this link and fill in the form.  http://journeys.ubuntuplanet.org/bf.php?fid=3573
Even if you have filled in other forms before - this is purely for CANDIDATES only.
http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/candidate-or-agent/uk-parliamentary-by-elections-great-britain

We aim at getting more that 100 candidates in the UK and presenting a strong united front with real solutions, by addressing the root of our problems and socio-economic woes.
You will be required to familiarise yourself with the simple UBUNTU philosophy and the 7-step plan of action as part of our elections manifesto.

The rest is simple - we speak from the heart; we tell the truth; we honour and respect everyone; we share information and educate people about the causes of our misery; and we understand that we do not have all the answers, but that all the answers will come from the communities themselves and the people of the UK as we re-write our laws and our economic policies for the people, by the people - to serve the people and not serve the corporations.

BASED ON THESE FACTS, UBUNTU WILL DO THE FOLLOWING
  1. Restructure the entire banking system to serve the people, and not enslave the people.
  2. Establish a PEOPLE’S BANK that creates money for the people by the people, tax-free and interest-free, with the potential to provide 100% employment and stop the financial enslavement.The PEOPLE'S BANK
  3. Let our scientists and inventors deliver a renewable source of Free Energy for everyone in the UK.
  4. Support our traditional healers and research scientists in finding alternative cures for all diseases and prevent the drug cartels from hiding such cures from the people.
  5. Support our farmers at every level to grow organic food; ban all GMO seeds and giants like Monsanto; plant food gardens across the nation so that no person in the UK ever goes hungry again.
  6. Decentralise the government so that people can govern themselves in their own communities – taking care of their own needs immediately, supported by the new People’s Bank.
  7. Restructure the judiciary and the legal system, to be written by the people for the people, unlike the unjust legal system we face in our courts today, which holds the rights of corporations above the rights of living breathing human beings.

Final Work On The Community Hall Before We Open For Musical Action

We have been working frantically for the past 4 weeks to get the hall ready for musical performances. We still have to install stage lights; toilet, basin and lights the dressing rooms - install the small PA system - organise the team of people who will be helping out at the door, security, kitchen, exits, ushers, stage hands, sound, lights, and more.
But the excitement is evident amongst the people on the street and the volunteers working on the community projects. 6 months of work is finally going to deliver some really visible results.

The new sign in front of the hall displays the activity for the week


Some final wood work to strengthen the doors






Out medieval door locking mechanism - since we have no money to fix or replace the doors


Everyone that comes through the doors to see what we are doing, signs the UBUNTU community projects petition - we aim at getting 2000 in total. That will be at least 50% of the local voting population


Finally we gain some feminine power in Altar - who helped us clean the hall, make polish for the wooden floors, and now takes on part of the community kitchen responsibilities

I was lucky again yesterday to sample the delicious food at the community kitchen at the hall - between juggling many balls regarding the launch of the hall and other community projects - including support for UBUNTU in the UK elections.


Michael Zwane prepares the new PA and speaker system to be installed





Our surround sound system is installed and we finally have sound in the hall for movies and more.


Excited residents scan the poster for the opening weekend with great enthusiasm


Posters have been distributed all over our town


Now it is up to us and the team to make the opening event a great success as an example of more events to come every week and every month.
