Universal Promise


Our Story

Education. Education. Education. We have a three-legged approach to our mission: traditional, career, and medical education and access. If one fails, the others are much less likely to succeed. Our goal is to approach education from all directions to do as much as we can to ensure its success and its subsequent empowerment.

Our interactions with the local Xhosa population are personal, long-term, and mutually meaningful. They learn from us, and we learn from them, and we are honored to empower those who have too long been victimized by institutionalized racism and oppression. The Xhosa people are welcoming, dignified, and earnest in their desire to improve heir lives via education, in all its iterations.

We provide individuals and institutions in impoverished regions with the academic resources needed to ensure educational and career opportunities that will promote just, civil, and hopeful societies.
