Ubuntu: Humanity's Operating System

Getrude Matsche embodies Ubuntu – the African philosophy with which she grew up in a small town in Zimbabwe. She’s a warm-hearted whirlwind of passion, drive, energy and vision, and believes she has been given this life in order to make a difference to the world and to even out the inequality she sees.

The Ubuntu philosophy is a way of acknowledging our common humanity, and it starts at home. In this episode we talk about the loneliness and isolation so many experience in Western society, and how we can change it. In Getrude’s words:

A person is only a person through other people.

I am because you are.

There is only WE.

In her 2013 TEDx talk (she has since presented another) Getrude described the African woman as the personification of “the downtrodden human being”. Since then, Getrude has been a facilitator for many social impact projects to help empower women, some of which she describes in this episode. It’s her intention that the HerStory women’s global empowerment movement she founded inspire, uplift, and connect one million women, and she’s well on the way to achieving that goal!
