There is an African Proverb which succinctly captures the humanity upon which a sense of community is founded:
Umuntu ngumuntu ngabanye ngabantu Motho Ke motho Ka batho
The broad meaning of this proverb is that each person's huminity is ideally expressed through his or her relationship with others, and theirs in turn, through a recognition of that person's humanity.
