“One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.” ~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu
The program weaves in the essence of the above philosophy into FLV. We do this by having FLVillagers volunteer time, such as, organizing meal trains, swapping childcare, gardening, cleaning, or whatever needs that may arise for families that could use a helping hand.
