“I am what I am because of who we all are”
The word Ubuntu originates from the Bantu dialect of Africa and is pronounced uu-Boon-too.
Desmond Tutu writes: “One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – 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.”
Let’s make a difference together! And have a fantastic night out at the Food4Africa Ubuntu Ball on 1 May!
