Ubuntu, a traditional African philosophy, recognizes how we are inextricably bound in each other’s humanity. Translated as, “I am because you are,” Ubuntu describes a sense of unity between people through which we each discover our own strengths and virtues. Featuring healer Credo Mutwa, GreenHouse Project director Dorah Lebelo, and former Deputy Minister of Health Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, this glimpse of South Africa shows compassion as a way of life.

Amanda -

If you find that essay post it on here so we can all read it! I think it's a wonderful concept that more communities and people should embrace...

Thanks for watching!

Hi Melissa - I really like what you're doing. This video is great. I included the concept of Ubuntu in one of my college essays, and I think EVERYONE should read it! if i could only find it. Perhaps this video is the best bet. I loved when one of the women said "You've got to be okay for me to be okay."
