Strengthen Community Bonds with Playful Team Building Activities

Welcome To The Ubuntu Card Community!

We are thrilled to have you join our ever-growing worldwide community of Ubuntu card enthusiasts. These cards are much more than a product; they create space for new conversations and open up a world of creativity and community building. We are excited for you to discover powerful new ways to encourage your groups to interact, have fun, and find commonalities with Ubuntu.

📌 About Ubuntu Cards

Ubuntu cards are designed to inspire meaningful connections, foster creativity, and encourage community building. There are 54 cards in a deck, and each card has a single image on one side and multiple images on the other. The cards offer limitless reflection opportunities through metaphor, but we have also discovered that they also offer just as many opportunities for group interaction and creative play.

🌍 The Ubuntu Philosophy 

At the heart of Ubuntu cards is the belief that there exists a common bond between us all. Specifically, the word Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term and philosophy (Nguni is a subset of the larger family of Bantu languages and peoples in the southern portion of Africa). The term means “humanity” and is frequently translated to “I am because we are.” Ubuntu highlights our interconnectedness as a community.
