Solidarity



“We don’t need unity in theory, we need solidarity in practice” Curious George Brigade, anarchy in the age of Dinosaurs


Solidarity can be defined as a bond/unity between or among persons bonded by the same unifying principles. In the lay man’s linguistic tenable, we can refer to it as being fully and lively present to the other. We live our solidarity in a meaningful way by keenly being attentive to the needs of others; CHARITY. 

In Lavigerie House I have observed that we actually manifest solidarity in two dimensions; first in the interior; within our family which begins from the team since we live in teams. Secondly, in the exterior; where we extend to people outside our community, that is, the consortium (Philosophy Centre Jinja), our pastoral places and the rest of the communities around us.
