What is Ubuntu?
The Cardinal spirit of Ubuntu is expressed in Xhosa as “Umntu ngumntu ngabanye abantu” in English as “people are people thru other people,” or “I am human because I belong to the human community and I view and treat others accordingly.” It is an African word for a universal concept which is fair and compassionate approach to a collective respect for human dignity.
