The Ubuntu Model has its focus on how much impact it is making. It focuses on at the depth and not the breadth of impact here. Hence the Ubuntu Model operates at the most basic level. It focuses on the smallest unit of society, the family.
Now in a family, children will always be cared for by the adults. This means providing customized plans for them. They have to be highly flexible so that they can address all those challenges which the kids may face in their life. This same principle will apply to the Ubuntu Model also. It has a really simple guiding philosophy. But there are very few organizations that operate on such a principle. This is why it is considered as an innovative and unique approach.
This Ubuntu Model is very successful as it is linked to the stability of the household besides being based on the health and education sectors too.
It seeks to fundamentally bring a change to the life of a child. Hence it is important that all the obstacles being faced by a child are addressed. This would also include preventing all obstacles which affect children and are preventing them from coming out of poverty.

They would be able to make a place for themselves in the world and get access to higher education along with employment. This way Andrew Rolfe has ensured that they grow into healthy adults who take responsibility for all their actions.
