UBUNTU is a Bantu term roughly translating to "human kindness." It is an idea from the Southern African region, which, means literally "human-ness," and is often translated as "humanity towards others," but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity". In Southern Africa, it has come to be used as a term for a kind of humanist philosophy, ethic or ideology, also known as Ubuntuism or Hunhuism.
The concept was adopted by UNESCO and promoted by many world Leaders, such as Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
