I Am Because You Are: How the Spirit of Ubuntu Inspired an Unlikely Friendship and Transformed a Community

By Jacob Lief, Andrea Thompson, Andrea Thompson

As a college student visiting South Africa, Jacob Lief discovered the true meaning of humanity and went on to found the Ubuntu Education Fund. I Am Because You Are is both a rough translation of the word “Ubuntu” and a manifestation of the idea itself. In this enthralling book, Lief details his friendship with a local teacher, and how their devotion to education helped shape their vision for the Fund, which offers an innovative model for lifting needy children out of poverty.
