Only Afrikans can solve Afrika’s problems, and the solutions must be indigenous. Umuganda is an African practice of self-help in which members of a village (mulukongo), in the spirit of cooperation, come together to tackle a challenging task. It is such a powerful concept that Rwanda dubbed their Governance Board Umuganda.  The beauty of Umuganda is that everyone contributes little but combining all the efforts makes an enormous impact in the community. Instead of complaining about Africa, a political leadership, and the plight of Africans around the world, let us do something about the  situation.

At Osiri, Umuganda is a group of talented people who are willing to play a role, no matter how small, to advance Afrika. Afrikaans do not have to wait until they reach retirement age to starting giving back. Now is the time to start giving back! Osiri University invites Afrikans (i.e., Africans, African Americans, and Africans in the Diaspora) to participate in Umuganda. Members of Umuganda will do any of these two things: 1) Advise an innovation village by mentoring Malamai (instructors), and/or 2) Donate to sponsor a Omsomi (student). You decide where and how to engage.

We welcome Africans in the Diaspora with terminal and advanced degrees, entrepreneurs, and executives/professionals in the industry to join Umuganda. The maximum commitment is two hours per month. Africa deserves the best people and talents to her service.
