The Zulu word, "Ubuntu," best represents our organization. Ubuntu (Oooooh-Boon-too) is a Zulu humanitarian philosophy. This philosophy includes trust, respect, love, kindness, sharing, help, support, hospitality, empathy, generosity, gentleness, and toughness. We adopt this philosophy when helping build resilient neighborhoods.
Our mission is to partner with our neighbors and strengthen the local community. We collaborate and support the best experts in community building: compassionate neighbors such as yourself.
