Them Cloud Kids Announces the Third Annual Ubuntu Awards: New Jersey's 30 Under 30

NEWARK - The 3rd annual Ubuntu Awards: New Jersey’s 30 Under 30 will commence at 5 pm on November 3, 2018, in the Great Hall at 15 Washington St. Newark, NJ.

Presented by Them Cloud Kids (TCK), the Ubuntu Awards will focus on recognizing distinguished men and women from 6 categories who embody the South African ideology of Ubuntu and have a significant presence and impact in the state of New Jersey. The Ubuntu Awards is a platform for individuals and organizations from various backgrounds to network, collaborate, and enjoy the accomplishments of one another.

This year's Ubuntu Awards will feature a spectacular opening number, stellar performances from diverse artists, a buffet by Celebrity Chef, Chef Nikko, and a speech from Central Ward Councilwoman LaMonica McIver. Attendees will hear from some of our amazing nominees on how they have impacted their communities and have the opportunity to network in the company of change makers. Last years Ubuntu Awards was sold out with over 200 guests and the “Honorary Cloud Kid” Essynce Moore, has since been featured in national media and publications.

This is the first award show of its kind to not only honor individuals based on their work ethic and impact but on the practice of Ubuntu in their everyday lives. The Visual & Sound, Love Is Love, “Help Us, Help Us,” Community Mogul, Innovation, and Health & Wellness ward categories represent the diverse skill set among nominees and the services they offer to impact New Jersey communities positively.

The Ubuntu Awards serves as a fundraiser to help Them Cloud Kids live out their mission to unite, uplift, and empower through the instruction and practice of Ubuntu. Proceeds will help sustain their community development initiatives focused on literacy, fighting hunger, arts & culture, open forums, and education implemented through their five core programs: Culture Class, “Help Us, Help Us” Community Feeding, Future Cloud, Cloudy Thoughts, and Peace On the Streets.

Them Cloud Kids have been able to engage over 1,000 New Jersey youth ages 6-18, 5,000 college-aged students and garnered over 500 community services hours.
