What is Ubuntu?

#Ubuntu [ùɓúntʼù]) is a Nguni Bantu term spoken by the people of South Africa, meaning #humanity. It is often translated as "I am because we are," and also "humanity towards others".


In Southern Africa, it has come to be used as a term for a kind of humanist philosophy, ethic, ideology even. We consider 'Ubuntu' to be a look on life, a way of thinking, speaking and acting. It's our way of life.


But, who better to express the meaning of 'Ubuntu' than Pres. Nelson Mandela...


Ubuntu does not mean that people should not enrich themselves. The question therefore is: Are you going to do so in order to enable the community around you to be able to improve? - Nelson Mandela
