KRUIDENIER, Retha. Trying for better circumstances (Zama Zama): Exploring ubuntu amongst marginalised women in an informal settlement. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.2, pp.1-7. ISSN 2074-7705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/VE.V36I2.1433.

This article explores possible experiences of ubuntu in the Zama Zama informal settlement. Postfoundational practical theology and the narrative approach function as paradigm and methodology. Themes and/or discourses like poverty, violence, xenophobia and the role of the local church were identified, but ubuntu is not always visible as a lived reality amongst the members of the community. The church is an exception. Women play a leading role in the congregation and it is in the church where ubuntu values are visible and experienced.
