The team behind the project is as diverse as the City of UBUNTU. Volunteers from a wide range of disciplines and ethnic backgrounds work together to create a place of cultural exchange.

Pater Jean de Dieu Tagne
I am part of the founding team of the City of Ubuntu and a priest in the Piarist Order, where I serve as parish priest in Maria Treu. I always admire what the encounter between people can produce. That is what inspires me about the City of Ubuntu.
I am an architect and run an architectural practice in Vienna with Herwig Ferch. City of Ubuntu opens up new perspectives on a wide variety of levels, makes a contribution against structural injustices and can thus positively influence people's lives.
I am an architect and run an architectural office in Vienna with Philipp Broinger. For me, City of Ubuntu is a small step that will change big things for the better. It gives me great joy that my contribution will improve the lives of many people and that we can learn from each other across continents.
I am a general practitioner in Vienna with a special interest in travel and tropical medicine. I joined the project team after the Cameroon trip in 2022 because I was very enthusiastic about the cultural exchange and the work in the City of Ubuntu.
I am a lecturer at universities of applied sciences as well as a trainer for adult education. I am excited by the possibility of being part of the creation of something new, under the exchange of cultures and competences.
I am a member of the parish council of the Piarist Parish of Maria Treu and therefore, so to speak, a link between this project and the parish. For me, City of Ubuntu is a fascinating project to enable encounters between cultures.
I work as a business lawyer in Vienna and came to the project through Herwig Ferch and Philipp Broinger. I am happy to contribute to the guiding theme "I am because we are" in the implementation of City of Ubuntu.
I am a marketing professional responsible for the website and online communication of the City of Ubuntu. I think it's nice to be able to make a small contribution to more social justice.
I study journalism and political science and was allowed to be part of the first trip to City of Ubuntu. City of Ubuntu means community to me. People from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs are working together to open the door to peace in the world through City of Ubuntu. I am very happy to be a part of it.
Our team in Cameroon
Stéphane Kenfack Lontsi
I am an engineer of energy technology and administrative secretary of ICALDE (Calasanz Institute of the Right to Education). The most important thing for me in City of Ubuntu is that we have a city that is completely independent and self-sufficient in energy. I want our city to generate the energy it needs itself from the natural resources it can produce.
Narcisse Talla Tankam
I am a research teacher working in the Computer Engineering Department of the IUT Fotso Victor of the University of Dschang in Cameroon. The City of Ubuntu means to me the transmission of knowledge and skills and even social behavior to the young generation of Africans and African women. It is an environment where dreams based on local realities are allowed.
I am a computer scientist. My activity now is teacher and researcher at the Institut Universitaire de Technologie Fotso Victor de Bandjoun - University of Dschang. The most important thing for me in City of Ubuntu, is the participatory and voluntary development of agricultural projects involving the local community and respecting human dignity.

I have a bachelor's degree in philosophy and theology and I am a farmer. I am currently working at the City of Ubuntu compound in Sanki. I am a farmer and I am currently working at the City of Ubuntu in Sanki. The most important aspect of the City of Ubuntuvis for me solidarity and hospitality.
I am a lecturer at the Catholic University of Central Africa - Yaoundé, Faculty of Law. What I appreciate about the City of Ubuntu is the openness to others and the solidarity it brings.
