“We are mutually fulfilling complements”
Sharing is an important value of Ubuntu. People have different qualities, talents and resources and these should be shared in a spirit of cooperativeness for positive living. Everyone should cooperate as sharing human beings and mutually fulfilling complements. This is indicative of the living of values like open-handedness and supportiveness in accordance with needs. Needs, physical and spiritual, are established when the discussion is focussing on the interest of others. We should talk in terms of the other person’s interests, thereby determining how one can strengthen others in their life challenges, to provide complementary capacity building assistance to others. – Dr Broodryk (2006).
