Ubuntu RELATED WORDS:
- Human nature
A teacher proposed a game to children of an African tribe. He put a basket of fruit near a tree and told the kids that the first one to reach the fruit would win them all. When he told them to run they all took each other's hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying the fruits. When asked why they ran like that, as one could have taken all the fruit for themselves, they said, "Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?"
Ubuntu is a philosophy that can be summed up as "I am because we are."
You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have ubuntu you are known for your generosity.
We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world.
