Today I’m sharing this simple story:
An anthropologist proposed a game to a group of African tribe children. He put a basket of fruit near a tree and told them that whoever reached it first would win it.
When he told them to run they joined hands and ran together, then sat together, enjoying the treats.
He asked them why they had run like that, when one could have had all the fruit for himself.
They replied, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy, when all the others are sad.’
In Xhosa culture, ‘UBUNTU’ means ‘I am because we are’.
