"I am, because you are."


“Differences are not intended to separate, to alienate. We are different precisely in order to realize our need of one another.” ― Desmond Tutu

"I am because you are," is the deep meaning of "Ubuntu," a traditional African philosophy recognizing the shared essence within humanity and life.
Ubuntu...is nothing more or less than compassion brought into colorful practice."~ Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa
In this film, we visit Dorah Lebelo and the GreenHouse Project, Credo Mutwa, the great Zulu traditional healer and teacher, and the forem Deputy Minister of Health, Nozizwa Madlala-Routledge, to learn more about this fundamental understanding of life and its ramifications on how we treat each other, ourselves, and the earth.
