UBUNTU: a philosophy of humanity & kindness towards others (South African)
Nelson Mandela explained Ubuntu as follows: A traveller through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food and attend him.
In Africa there is a concept known as 'ubuntu' - the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.
I love this necklace. And I love this word! Just the right length too (18 inches), it will look fab with everything, especially my tees & sweatshirts! : - )
