When we started as The Bluff Online (01/01/2010), we had no idea that it would grow as it did, going from a community based website to now having hits from all over the world, with us forging not only Business relationships along the way but friendships too …
The Bluff Online generated such tremendous and overwhelming support from Businesses / Companies / Service Providers and Residents on The Bluff and Surrounds, it resulted in us launching The Villager Magazine on 1st May 2013, which thanks to our Community and our Advertisers became a huge success …
The next logical step for us was to close The Bluff Online site, thus making way for growth and expansion and being replacing it with the new site The Villager Online – www.thevillageronline.co.za
We pride ourselves on our service levels, turnaround times and our ethics.
Our philosophy can be best described by the Word uBuntu …
uBuntu : “I am because you are.”
The word Ubuntu could be summed up in the words kindness and humanity!
It actually comes from the Nguni language spoken in Southern Africa, relating to a Zulu concept, – “umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu” – which means that a person is only a person through their relationship to others.
The concept of uBuntu has the potential to transform the world into one of better understanding and respect for every human being. It’s about co-operation, compassion, forgiveness, and a sense of togetherness.
“Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”.
“Ubuntu” also means “I am who I am because of / through other people”.
