Ubuntu Community Catalyst About Us

The Zulu word, "Ubuntu," best represents the brand for which our organization is known. Ubuntu (Oooooh-Boon-too) is a Zulu humanitarian philosophy that is still practiced today across southern Africa and beyond. It is a way of thinking about and acting on what it means to be human. This philosophy includes trust, respect, love, kindness, help, support, compassion, hospitality, empathy, generosity, gentleness, and toughness. As a people harnessing a collective paradigm through life, community, and society, Ubuntu's philosophy focuses on the values of how an individual should behave towards others.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu described it best, "My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours."

We firmly hold true and uphold the Ubuntu Philosophy at Ubuntu Community Catalyst. As we serve communities near and far, our motto is: I Am Because We Are.
