Young Nelson Mandela crosses a region of Africa and very weary and hungry he arrives to a small village. As soon as he gets there, people already take care of him and offer water and food. Afterwards, Mandela learns from the children of the village the concept of UBUNTU: “I am because we are” or “I only exist because we exist”. UBUNTU is generosity, solidarity, friendship, compassion, respect and the sincere desire for happiness and harmony among human beings. The main idea is that one cannot exist as a human being alone.
