Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu – I am because you are

Translated from isiZulu as ‘a person is a person through other people’. The deeper meaning is to always believe in community and unity. It is based on the premise that in this world you are not alone, we all interdependent of each other and the power of knowing that is impactful, I am because you are .

Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said, “My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together”. The understanding of how human beings working together produces infinitely great achievements. It is the enrichment of the community as well as the self, because the self is part of the community.
