Someone asked me, “Youre a whitey why do you go for Ubuntubags and placemats?”

The answer is simple, I consider myself an African. I was born in Africa, I grew up in Africa I have lived my whole life in Africa, in fact I have never been out of Africa. I love Africa, I love the vibrant African Spirit. I could go on verbatim on the meaning of Ubuntu and still not come anywhere close to the meaning as given by Nelson Mandela on you tube 

In South Africa, there are two distinct disadvantage groups, the previous and present : Majority of the previous disadvantaged are still disadvantaged, the major difference is their ranks have been swelled by the present disadvantaged. Frankly poverty doesent distinguish between past and present it affects everybody the same. Everyday I am faced with pleas for help, I am in the same position they are in, so I could shrug my shoulders and walk away with an attitude I have nothing so I cant do anything; or I can take the stand which I have, an attitude of gratitude. I have been blessed with talents, one of them is sewing. I believe we are blessed to be a blessing to others, not to horde it all to ourselves, if through Ubuntu Bags and Placemats I can create work oppurtunities for others, then I would have achieved what I set out to do.
