UBUNTU - The REAL Meaning of Teamwork!

The NEW Meaning of Teamwork - UBUNTU

An Anthropologist suggested the following game to a group of children in an African tribe... He placed a basket full of fresh fruit under a tree.  Then he said, whoever reaches the basket first in a race will be the winner of all the fruit.

As he gave the signal to begin the race, the whole group held hands and ran in unison to the tree.  Then they sat down and enjoyed the prize together.

When asked why they had done such a thing, they replied; "UBUNTU"... 'How could one of us be happy (feel happiness) while the rest are in despair (unhappy)?'

In the Xhosa culture, Ubuntu means: "I am, because we are."  Perhaps we could all learn a thing or two from the Xhosa people ;)))
