Kwanzaa Day 3: Ujima

28 Dec

Kwanzaa candlesUjima = Collective Work & Responsibility

You have probably heard the common quotation, “It takes a village to raise a child.” This principle of Kwanzaa reminds us that it takes a village to do anything worth doing … and that each one of us contributes to the success of our community. Ujima means: I am willing to collaborate with others in a way that improves the community and the world. I am responsible for doing my part.
