Cape to Cairo

At Cape to Cairo we advocate ‘Ubuntu’ – I am because we are.  The word Ubuntu is part of the Zulu phrase ‘Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu’, which literally means that a person is a person through other people. Cape to Cairo is because you are. In this spirit we acknowledge our responsibility to share our good fortune with others. Over the years we’ve supported and sponsored a number of community events an projects, not just in Australia but Africa too.
