Ubuntu and Africa

Ubuntu unlike the operating system as we computer techies know it, is a African traditional concept which comes from Zulu and Xhola languages. It is often translated as “I am because we are,” and also “humanity towards others”, but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.

The values accepted in ubuntu emphasize caring, sharing, reciprocity, co-operation, compassion and empathy in recognition that for human beings to develop, flourish and reach their full potential, they need to conduct their relationships in a manner that promotes the well-being of others.

From the beginning of time the divine principles of ubuntu have guided African societies. It is extremely important in Africa and the world at large – as the world needs a common guiding principle of human values.
