"Tuko Pamoja" in Swahili literally means "we are together". However, as sometimes happens, the translated words do not provide the true meaning of the original expression.
"Tuko Pamoja" conveys participation, reciprocal attention which seeks active and deep sharing: we understand each other, we are on the same side and we will go forward together as brothers. When said, an empathic link is established, strong and immediate, which needs no explanation.
Touching hands is often the consequent gesture, almost inevitable, that bears testimony to the warmth and the physicality of the harmony that has been created.
