The Meaning of UBUNTU
Ubuntu is an African philosophy based on the connection of all human beings. “I am because we are” is a phrase that is commonly associated with the philosophy. Ubuntu is based on mutual support and sharing what you can to help others.
Together we can restore the humanity of children living with HIV. Together, we can heal each other, our communities, and the world. That is all a part of the philosophy known as ubuntu, which we are making every effort to put to practical use. You are a part of this transformation!
“Ubuntu [is] that profound African sense that we are only human through the humanity of other human beings.”
