Get Involved

The Africans have a term "Ubuntu" which simply means: "A man can't be a man without the help of other men"

The Bible  encourages us to "value others above ourselves, not looking to our own interests but each of us to the interests of the others."

THANK YOU FOR SHARING IN THE LIVES OF OUR COMMUNITY, AND FOR LETTING THEIR STORIES INTERTWINE WITH YOURS

An expanded definition of 'ubuntu' is ............. ‘It is the essence of being human. It speaks of the fact that my humanity is caught up and is inextricably bound up in yours. I am human because I belong. It speaks about wholeness, it speaks about compassion. A person with Ubuntu is welcoming, hospitable, warm and generous, willing to share. Such people are open and available to others, willing to be vulnerable, affirming of others, do not feel threatened that others are able and good, for they have a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that they belong in a greater whole." (Desmond Tutu)
