THE POWER OF HUMAN SOLIDARITY

UBUNTU ( Origin :Zulu==> Humanity towards others<=== ) 

Ubuntu is a famous folkore from Africa. It is the capacity  to express compassion, reciprocity , dignity and humanity.

The motivation behind the ubuntu culture in Africa...

The folklore comes to life , when an anthropologist proposes a game to the tribal children.

He placed a baked of sweets near a tree and made the children stand 100 metres away. He then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket . 

When he said " Ready, steady go ! " ...

The reaction from the children surprised the anthropologist .

As the anthropologist finished announcing for them to start the race,

The children all held each others hands, ran together towards the tree, astray reached the sweets, they divided the sweets equally among themselves , ate the sweets and all enjoyed them :)

The anthropologist was surprised and asked them why they had done as they did . 

The children all answered, .... "UBUNTU " , which meant ,

"How can one be happy when the others are sad ?" 

Ubuntu  means :

"I am because we are "
