Narrated by Former South African Deputy Minister of Health Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, this video is best summed up in the translation of its title, Ubuntu: "I am because you are." Ubuntu is a way of seeing the world, recognizing the interconnectedness of all things, and honoring those relationships. It is also a way of being in the world, and living our lives with the understanding that, in fact, we are our brothers and sisters keeper. Ubuntu takes the idea that "It takes a village to raise a child" and expands it to the truth that it takes all of us helping each other to make the world a better place.
