Project Ubuntu comes to Tucson to benefit Communty Food Bankby Carolyn Classen on Feb. 25, 2013, under Education, Health, Life
Haven’t heard much about this Project Ubuntu, but Daniel is in town this week, so give him a call if you’re interested in finding out more. Website: www.projectubuntu.info. Good luck to Daniel in his attempt to create more “community” throughout our country.
“Ubuntu” is a philosophy found throughout the southern nations of Africa that is characterized by the notion that a person is a person through others (in Zulu: “umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu”). That is, as Archbishop Desmond Tutu says, it is not centered around the concept of “I think, therefore I am;” but rather, “I am a human because I belong. I participate. I share.” It comes from someone “knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.”
