"The founding principles and idea of Home for Humanity resonates with me as it connects strongly with the values I try to live in my life and the principles that represent the foundation of what I do.  In the NILE Journeys, one of our values is Mallenito, which means in the Fadjiki language of the Nubians of Sudan and Egypt, home for everyone.  This notion of Mallenito connects strong with Home for Humanity. Similarly the concept of Ubuntu, where I am because you are and because we are, where the individual identity is not separated from the diversity of identities with the realm of the human family and nature as well."
