Ubuntu - I am because you are


The word ubuntu is part of the Zulu phrase "Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu", which literally means that a person is a person through the connection with other people. The word has its roots in African philosophy, where the idea of the ​​community as one of the building blocks of society is prominent.

Nelson Mandela has explained the word like this: "In the past, when we were young, when a traveler stopped at a village, he did not have to ask for food or water: once he stopped, the people give him what he needs. It is one aspect of Ubuntu . [...] The question today is; what will we do to enable society to improve? If we can do something for someone else, we have done something important that will be appreciated." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HED4h00xPPA&t=95s 

The expression: "I am because you are" could not be truer for a crafter! Welcome to my blog!
