I respect you. I cherish you. You matter to me.


So, I exist for you....


In this African tribe, The Babemba Tribe when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them for two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.

The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.

But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help. They unite together to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected.

Shikoba Nabajyotisaikia!
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.”

In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
