The Ubuntu Philosophy

A reminder of who we are in the community
We are nothing without our community. Prosperity is measured in terms of how healthy the whole community is. At Tiriji Foundation we follow the Ubuntu philosophy of "I am because we are" to inspire and drive all that we do.

RECLAIMING YOUR POWER

"When you reclaim a space, you remember who you are, who you are supposed to be. You remember your power. Then you can transform your situation. You’ve moved from living in fear to living in love and light."
– Dr. Karambu Ringera

A Model for Regeneration

Holistic Systems for Transformation

Tiriji Foundation is a model for regeneration, showcasing how people can transform their circumstance to a place of resilience and a thriving life. Even the most vulnerable in our community can find their meaning and purpose in life, allowing them to step into power and to become a part of an evolving and dynamic ecosystem.

Our work is based on a holistic systems approach that models people working with the intent to transform their circumstances. Using an Ubuntu-based framework of inter-being, connectedness, and interdependence, we are rebuilding our community by rebuilding our living systems in nature.

Nature guides us in regeneration: cultivating the capacity, ability, and capability in people, communities, and other natural systems to renew, adapt, and thrive. Regenerative systems and places have the capacity to evolve toward increasing states of health, growth, and vitality.
