Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.
— Chinese Proverb
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 –
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

When the very blood in our veins teaches us about generosity and helping others. How can we the “some-fortunate” not look to our colleagues and our businesses and not ask for a helping hand?

There is nothing so precious, as a man’s time. When he gives of it, we know he gives up something else to be there – to help.

To our academy’s volunteers, thank you for your precious time.

Help us, support our volunteers. Ask your companies and help us raise funds for the fine volunteers of Midas.
