There is an African Philosophy called Umbuntu that means “I am because we are… a person is a person through other people”. The philosophy of Umbuntu has intrigued me since I learned about it. I have gradually embraced the principles of collectivism, personal responsibility, modeling and community since earlier in my adulthood, but I never heard these principles summarized in such a beautiful concise way! These principles have always been at the heart of my work with men, boys and community and I attempt to create spaces where these ideas are able to have a home.
