"I Am Because We Are"

St. Patricks School Theme

Historia
Ubuntu is a very nice story from Africa....
The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture in Africa...
An anthropologist proposed a game to the African Tribal children...

He placed a basket of sweets near a tree and made the children stand 100 meters away. Then announced that whoever reaches the basket first would get all the sweets in the basket. When he said 'Ready Steady Go!'...

Do you know what these chidren did? They all held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree,divided the sweets equally among themselves,ate the sweets and enjoyed it.

When the anthropologist asked them why they did so,
They answered... "Ubuntu."

Which meant-'How can one be happy when the others are sad?' Ubuntu in their language means-

"I am because we are"
A strong message for all generations

Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go.

Let's have a Ubuntu Life.
