Day 4 of our Kwanzaa Celebration is the forth Principle – Ujamaa - Cooperative Economics.
Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual support. We must continue to be focused on the Family and the Community. A deep abiding Love in Christ is the source of our being and we must continue to show that Love of Christ to all of our families, our Communities and our world, in all that we do.
Cooperative Economics does not mean 'I' must do all I can do to take care of me and mine, we must be focused on the community. One makes it out and makes good, he/she must then have the responsibility to go BACK and GIVE BACK to their respective Communities. Building jobs, advantages for those who are dis-advantaged, underprivileged, and under educated. Giving back to the least, lost and most abandoned and HELPING them, but means of jobs, community centers, educational assistance, bringing up and developing more community leaders – empowering them with the ability to say YES YOU CAN, and most of all providing them an economic resource base to aid and assist in the Communal Socio-Economic environment.
Ujamaa; COOPERATIVE and COLLECTIVE Economics
Jesus, Mary and Joseph pray for us ALL!
