The principle of Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) calls on us to reaffirm our relationship and responsibility to each other, our ancestors and to future generations. It reminds us that we must share the responsibility for building the communities, societies and world we want and deserve to live in-a-caring, cooperative, just and ultimately good world. And it calls on us to constantly wage struggles around critical issues in our lives which insure present and future good in the world. Thus, it is a call for collective work and responsibility, that is to say, a self-conscious and sustained struggle, to make the moral ideal of ancient Africa a social reality for modern Africa on the continent and throughout the world African community. And this moral ideal poses a realm of human freedom and human flourishing where there is profound and enduring respect for: the dignity and rights of the human person; the well-being and flourishing of family and community; the integrity and value of the environment; and the reciprocal solidarity and cooperation for mutual benefit of humanity.
